Wilson Confident Tänak and Mõlder Can Put Mexico Accident Behind Them


“I’m very confident we won’t see any adverse effects in Argentina,” Wilson explained.  “The important thing was that we got them both back out in Mexico. That was vital because of the big gap between that rally and Argentina. They did some useful kilometres after the accident and they’ll be ready to go in Argentina.”

“I think both guys drew confidence from the fact that the team was 100% behind them – I know how important that is for a driver and co-driver. It’s all about feeling supported and that your colleagues want to help.

“But Raigo has been really positive as well and that’s been a big help. The last thing a driver wants is to think his co-driver’s a bit apprehensive. So for a guy to calmly swim to the side (of the reservoir) with his pace notes and pencil in his hand, is remarkable.”
