Sébastien Ogier (Toyota) will take the lead on the last day of Rally Sardinia, the fifth round of the WRC season. He is ahead, at the end of the day on Saturday, Elfyn Evans (Toyota) and Thierry neuville (Hyundai). Ott Tanak (Hyundai) and Dani Sordo (Hyundai) retired.
“Unfortunately, it hit the bad guys today. It’s really not a good day for the team even though we end up on the current podium. I tried several times, I gave everything, but I didn’t manage to get Evans. I think it’s going to be the same story on Sunday. The Toyotas were very quick today. I can’t compete with them. It’s frustrating because you know we were well in Portugal. Here, the trend is reversed. We will have to understand why it has not worked so well for us, but I can guarantee you that people are already on it “, analyzes the Belgian at our microphone at the end of the day.
And to add: “It doesn’t worry me because we have seen that it can change from one rally to another. It’s a difficult time for the team, but we had worse times I think. We will get up, but first of all, we’ll have to finish the race. Stay focused to get 3rd place and a few points in the Power Stage. Ogier will undoubtedly pull the chestnuts out of the fire, but we must admit that he did a very good job. rally with a tool that allows him to be so strong. “
Four specials are on the menu for the day on Sunday, including two to be followed live video on RTBF.
