Returning to action under Rally 2 regulations, Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) won two of the day’s eight stages in the third Volkswagen Polo R WRC, with a further five stage wins going to Ogier/Ingrassia (F/F). The Finnish pair is currently eighth in the Manufacturers’ classification and could score valuable points in the race for the WRC Manufacturers’ title on Sunday.
Quotes after day two of the Rally Spain
Jari-Matti Latvala, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #2
“I gained some confidence today. I have to admit that things have not gone entirely to plan for us recently. Returning under Rally 2 regulations today, we produce some fast times and the feeling for the car, line and driving style was back. I lost a little time with a puncture in the afternoon, which meant I had to be careful on the following stages. All in all, I’m happy with the day, although this is definitely not the role I had hoped to play at the Rally Spain. Tomorrow is all about scoring points for the Manufacturers’ Championship. We will give it our best shot.”
