1 Mins read

It was a mixed day two for the M-Sport World Rally Team on day 2 of the XION Rally Argentina 2015, round four of the FIA World Rally Championship. Elfyn Evans ended the day in fifth place while Ott Tanak had to retire after damaging a wheel.

It was a strong start to the day for Estonian Tanak as he ended the first loop fourth overall but on stage four Tanak hit a rock in a watersplash and damaged a wheel ruling him out for the rest of the days action.

“It looks like I might be the unluckiest driver in the championship at the moment. From a driver point of view I can’t see any way of avoiding what happened to us today. We were in first gear going into a water splash. There was a stone in the water and it ripped the wheel off. ”

Evans fared better however. The Welshman finished the first loop of the morning fifth after going third fastest on stage 3.  Another third fastest time was to follow on stage five as Evans managed to finish the day fifth overall.

“I think we’ve had a good day. We came here wanting to show a vast improvement from this time last year, and I think we have done that. Of course we had some issues in SS2 when we got caught behind Neuville, but I hope that we can get most of that time back.”

Crews will have to tackle four more stages tomorrow.
