Neuville continues podium run with second place in Corsica


Thierry Neuville continued his recent run of form with another podium finish in Corsica.

The #3 Hyundai driver put in an excellent performance at the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France on his way to a second-place finish.

Neuville fought with the Volkswagen of Andreas Mikkelsen throughout the three days to secure the second step on the podium.

The Belgian said “It has been a very positive and competitive weekend. We have made no mistakes in some tricky but enjoyable stages; it was pretty much the perfect event, really. Everyone in the team has done a good job, and I’m happy with what we have achieved.

“The New Generation i20 WRC has had great pace, as we have seen from some of the stage times. We were able to build a gap over Andreas on Saturday so we just had to stay focused on our driving in the final stages to bring the car home.

“Working with my new engineer, we have made continuous improvements to the car so I’m satisfied with the weekend. We’ve built some excellent momentum since Sardinia so I hope we can continue in this direction as we look ahead to Spain.”
