Thierry Neuville says that he has “always felt comfortable” on Rally Italia Sardegna and wants to make it two successive wins on the event next weekend.

Neuville has won two of the last three editions of the Italian round of the FIA World Rally Championship – in both 2016 and 2018 – and the Belgian sees no reason why he can’t make it a third victory as he aims to close the gap at the top of the Drivers Standings.

Speaking ahead of the event, he said: “Sardinia is one of my favourite events. It suits perfectly to my driving style and to our pace notes system. Nicolas and I have always felt comfortable there and we have had lots of success in the pas t. I hope we will be able to add to that in this year’s event.”

“The championship is heating up nicely, so it will be another close battle I am sure. We will have the pleasure of driving against some really beautiful landscapes with some nice, technical stages – exactly what we enjoy!”

Neuville currently sits third in the championship behind Sebastien Ogier and Ott Tänak and goes into next weekend on the back of a second-place result on Rally Portugal.
