M-Sport Ford World Rally Team’s Elfyn Evans says that him and co-driver Daniel Barritt “went for a good result and that’s what we got” on the 2018 Rally de España.

Evans finished third last weekend after leapfrogging Thierry Neuville on the final stage following the Belgian hitting a rock with his Hyundai Shell Mobis WRT i20 WRC. He beat title contender Neuville by just 0.5 seconds and finished just 16.5 seconds behind overall winner Sébastien Loeb.

Evans said on his result: “We came here to secure a good result and that’s what we got. The speed has been up there for the past few rallies now, but for various reasons we’ve come away empty handed. It’s good to finally see that speed rewarded and to show that we had the pace on both surfaces here in Spain.”

Evans’ next event will be the season closing Kennards Hire Rally Australia, the final round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship, which takes place between November 15-18.
