Mikkelsen happy with Polo R setup in Tour de Corse Shakedown

1 Mins read

Andreas Mikkelsen was happy with the setup of his Volkswagen Polo R WRC as the Volkswagen driver was eighth for Shakedown at the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France.

Mikkelsen needs to finish eighth or better if he is to keep his World Rally Championship hopes alive with a 59-point deficit to his championship-leading team-mate Sébastien Ogier.

The Norwegian set a 3:55.5 on his first run in Shakedown, which is nearly four seconds off the leading time set by Ogier.

Mikkelsen said “That was a really representative stage for the Rally France here on Corsica. Very tight and winding. Perhaps one of the best shakedowns, when it comes to preparing for a rally.

“We tried a few new set-up variants, which were not actually ideal. Despite this, I am happy, as everything ran perfectly apart from that. It is good to have got a feel for the asphalt on Corsica again. We are ready to get going, and I am looking forward to it.”
