2018 Tour de Corse – Part 6

Elfyn Evans and Phil Mills have triumphed in the face of adversity this weekend – the Welshmen’s focus and determination delivering an impressive fifth-place at the legendary Tour de Corse.

The relationship between a driver and co-driver is something truly unique – developed and perfected over time. With Daniel Barritt needing more rest before his return, Mills took to the notes – confidently navigating his countryman through some of the FIA World Rally Championship’s most arduous asphalt stages.

The pairing had just six runs through Shakedown to perfect their relationship inside the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC, but soon found a comfortable rhythm with which to challenge for a strong result.

Growing in confidence with every kilometre, the pairing were just 3.5 seconds shy of fourth place at the end of the event.

Elfyn said:

It was never going to be an easy weekend for us, but Phil has done an incredible job – jumping in at the last minute and getting us through without incident. We’ve collected some solid points which is what we came here to do. There is still a lot of work to do as far as the championship is concerned, but at least we can go to Argentina in a positive frame of mind and try to push for a strong result.
