Hyundai head into Rally Sweden aiming for a strong result following on from an extremely positive opening Rally Monte Carlo. The team have worked extremely hard over the winter and team director Andrea Adamo commented on Rally Sweden saying:
Sweden has been good to us in the past, including our victory and double podium last year. “We have all the ingredients to win and while we do not underestimate our rivals, who are very strong, we want to let our ambition dictate our performance.
Thierry Neuville commented on the upcoming rally in Sweden saying:
Monte-Carlo was a good sign of potential for us and we can’t wait to get in the car again. “Our car has always worked well in Sweden, allowing us to set fast times on the frozen roads and use the snow banks to push to the limit.
Andreas Mikkelsen commented on the rally saying:
Driving with studded tyres on the stages gives you an incredible feeling, like you are floating. We were disappointed to retire from Monte but we had found a good rhythm with the car.”
Sebastien Loeb commented on the upcoming rally saying:
It is a very different challenge. “It can be the most exciting rally of the season if it’s full ice with good conditions and sun, yet it can be very difficult if the snow is melting with rain – so naturally, we’re hoping to have good conditions
