SWEDEN PODIUM FOR GREENSMITH
M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Gus Greensmith had much to learn at this weekend’s Rally Sweden, but showed good progress and brought the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta R5s home in third place respectively in the WRC 2 Pro class.
Gus Greensmith (3rd WRC 2 Pro) said:
“It’s been a tricky weekend and hard to find the confidence. The pace wasn’t where I wanted it to be, so we just had to keep it on the road for both the manufacturer and driver championships. In that sense the result was good and we scored some good points, but we still have a lot to learn and improve on snow.”
Team Principal, Richard Millener, said:
“We knew it would be a tough weekend for Gus and Lukasz this weekend, but Gus’ resilience paid off and he has been rewarded with another WRC 2 Pro podium. He is a natural competitor and always wants to be faster, but we need to remember that this was only his second ever rally on snow. I think he can be pleased with his progress over the weekend, and he still holds the lead in the championship.
