1 Mins read

Jari-Matti Latvala had a difficult day in Corsica, but the Volkswagen driver managed to finish fourth after Day 2 on the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France.

Latvala, who had been struggling with his brakes all day, still managed to stay ahead of Citroën’s Craig Breen in fifth, more than +23.6 seconds ahead of the Irishman.

The Finn goes onto the final day in Corsica more than +33.3 seconds behind his team-mate Andreas Mikkelsen with just SS9 and the Power Stage to go.

Latvala said “I never really had a good feel for the brakes today, and was not really happy with my times. Unfortunately, this meant I was unable to attack as I had hoped. Instead, I just had to do what I could.

“We tried out a slightly softer set-up towards the end, which worked well. All in all, fourth place is a good result, although not what I had hoped for. However, we will not give up in the battle for the podium.”
