WRC A FULL 2014

Points for Mads Østberg and Citroën

VMADS1

10 March 2014

After leading at the start of the Rally Guanajuato Corona, Mads Østberg and Jonas Andersson ended up taking the points awarded for ninth place. Unfortunately, Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle didn’t make it to the finish.
The Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team stays in second place in the Manufacturers’ World Rally Championship after the Mexican round.
The WRC returns to Europe for the next event in Portugal on 3-6 April.

Impressive in the early stages of the rally, Mads Østberg headed the overall standings between SS3 and SS6 on Friday.

However on day two, the crew ran into difficulties when they broke part of the suspension on their car. Despite their attempts to repair the damage, they failed to arrive on time for the start of the next stage.

After rejoining this morning under Rally 2 rules, the Norwegian continued to drive at a strong pace, securing two stage wins today, firstly on the longest stage of the rally, the 56 kilometre-long Guanajuatito, and then on Derramadero.

Having moved back into the top 10, Mads Østberg and Jonas Andersson ended up scoring two points. They therefore remain in third place in the Drivers’ and Co-drivers’ Championships.

Ninth overall this morning, Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle ran into trouble after hitting a rock on the Power Stage and were unable to complete the rally.
QUOTE, UNQUOTE

Mads Østberg: “There are many positives we can take from the rally. We clearly have the speed. We showed that we are able to match the pace of the best crews. Today’s final leg has given us the opportunity to work on preparations for the upcoming events. Apart from one unfortunate corner, it was a very good rally. I’m really pleased to finish the rally with a couple of stage wins. I am convinced that we have improved this week. We know a lot more now than we did at the start of the rally. We have some very solid foundations we can build on in our tests for the Rally de Portugal.”

Kris Meeke: “I feel like I have made a huge amount of progress in terms of understanding the Citroën DS3 WRC and the pace to adopt in the stages. It’s very disappointing not to finish the rally. On the Power Stage, I had good pace notes and I was on the right line, but I hit a rock on the inside of a corner. I was first on the road, so I couldn’t avoid it. Not making it to the finish is very frustrating even if there are lot of positives that we can take away from this rally.”

Yves Matton (Citroën Racing Team Principal): “Obviously, it’s a disappointing result when you know the potential of our team, the Citroën DS3 WRCs and our crews. Once again Mads showed, however, that he was capable of matching the best drivers. He was one of the quickest drivers throughout the weekend. He is improving consistently and quickly, which is highly encouraging for the next few events. As regards Kris, obviously it was tough for him competing in such a difficult rally for the first time. We knew our crews were relatively inexperienced. We’ve probably paid the price for that today, but that takes nothing away from their potential.”
HOW THE ACTION UNFOLDED

SS19 – Super Special Stage 5 (4.42km) – Fastest time for Sébastien Ogier on the fifth running of the super special stage. Mads Østberg grabbed the third fastest time whilst Kris Meeke finished eighth.

SS20 – Guanajuatito (55.92km) – On the longest rally of the season thus far, Mads Østberg produced a superb performance. His fastest time moved him closer to the top 10 whilst Kris Meeke finished sixth.

SS21 – Derramadero (11.63km) – Another stage win for Mads Østberg, who grabbed tenth position in the overall standings. Fifth fastest, Kris Meeke remained in ninth position.

SS22 – El Brinco 2 Power Stage (8.25km) – On the Power Stage, Kris Meeke hit a rock and had to stop. Fifth fastest in the rain, Mads Østberg moved up into ninth position. The top three on this stage were Sébastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Mikko Hirvonen.

40th MANATEQ QATAR?? INTERNATIONAL RALLY

SATURDAY

SS11 – Al-Khor 2 – 18.18km.

AL-ATTIYAH ?? SEALS 14TH QATAR ?? RALLY WIN AND FIRST REGIONAL SUCCESS FOR VOLKSWAGEN’S POLO GTI R5 ??

LUSAIL (Qatar): Nasser Saleh Al-Attiyah cruised through the final six gravel special stages of the Manateq Qatar International Rally to seal a convincing victory on Saturday.

A record-breaking 14th victory in his home event also marked a remarkable 70th MERC victory in the 211-event history of the FIA Middle East Rally Championships since 1984. His French co-driver Matthieu Baumel duly claimed his third win in Qatar and a career 18th in the MERC.

The success also marked the first outright FIA championship rally win for Volkswagen’s Polo GTI R5 that made its debut at the WRC in Spain last October and claimed WRC 2 success in Sweden in February with Norwegian driver Ole Christian Veiby. Customer Polos have already won national events in Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Latvia this year
