Impressive 4th place keeps strong WRC season going.
Ensuring that both of the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Fiestas finished in the top-four,
Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin collected another strong haul of points to consolidate their fourth place in the championship alongside the second place finish of Teemu Suninen and Jarmo Lehtinen.
The British pairing had been part of a Fiesta one-two through the early stages, but fell adrift of the podium when the second pass of Castelsardo (SS7) was cancelled for the cars behind – giving their rivals the benefit of fresher tyres and a better road position the following day.
Locked in an intense battle for fourth place, which became a battle for third given the late drama, the Welshman missed out by less than a second.
But despite forgoing a double podium for the Fiesta, he strengthens his championship position going into the summer break.
