Ott Tänak was adamant he “had the pace to win” on last weekend’s Rally Mexico.

Tänak stormed through the field to second place by Saturday evening after recovering from losing 45 seconds early on Friday with suspension damage and the Estonian admitted he was happy to make it two podiums in two events with his new team.

He said after the end of the final stage: “We had the performance to win this weekend; the incident on Friday morning was my mistake, and I accept full blame for that”

“We then just tried to get the most out of the rest of the event, and could slowly, slowly make up time and positions. It’s been a demanding event for many reasons, and mentally quite tough, but we have another podium to our name, which is good.”

He continued: “I am pleased to add another second place to my results for Hyundai Motorsport. I feel that I have pushed as hard as I could this weekend, my first proper gravel rally with the team and in the Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC.”

Tänak is now fifth in the Drivers Standings after the opening three rounds of the 2020 season, with only four points separating him, Kalle Rovanperä and teammate Thierry Neuville in the championship.
