It’s been a busy week of announcements but now the full focus is on the ERC. How happy with where you are in the world right now?
I have to check sometimes where I am in the world because it’s a very busy couple of weeks ahead of me but it’s nice to be in the car a lot in these next couple of weeks. It’s difficult to get back into the R5 car and on Tarmac again, a lot of things to dial back into but it’s been good. I had a nice test this week, tricky conditions in the shakedown today and I’m looking forward to the rally now.
We’re experiencing a lot of unpredictable weather but what are your targets for the rally?
Like every other rally we’ve done this year with the programme is to try to develop the MRF tyre more and more. It’s in a junior stage at the moment and we haven’t done so much running in the wet and changeable conditions so far and I guess we’ll learn a lot of new things this weekend. To be honest with you, like I’ve always said, the competition is a thing on the side. It’s nice to see where we are but we have to remain focused on the development.
You used two different cars during the test earlier on in the week. What was the purpose for that?
Basically, the test was more a development tyre test so we did 80 per cent of the running in the test car jut to save the entry car for the rally. When we finished the tyre development part of the test day on Wednesday we switched over to the entry car and just refined the set-up. To be honest with you, since I done the first before Rome I haven’t changed the Tarmac set-up so much and we did Alba also. I like the balance of the car so we didn’t have to do so much with the entry car.”
