After finishing 11th on the 2018 Rally de España, M-Sport Ford World Rally Team driver Teemu Suninen admitted that “it was a tough weekend.”

Suninen , who was making his first appearance on the Spanish event, kept improving across the weekend and gained confidence after every stage and said: “It was a tough weekend for us but I learnt a lot about how to drive this car in these conditions –especially the wet Tarmac where I have no experience with a world rally car.”

“We learned a lot and it was good to see the times improve. In the dry I think our times were at a pretty okay level, but I know I still have things to learn to improve my driving technique.”

The Finn used the penultimate round of the championship to learn for the future and a third-place finish on stage 13, El Montmell, was a weekend highlight for the 24-year-old.

His next event will be the final round of the 2018 FIA World Rally Championship, Kennards Hire Rally Australia, between November 15-18.
