Elfyn Evans admitted he wasn’t entirely pleased with fourth on last weekend’s Rally Estonia, but admitted he was pleased with his second place Power Stage result.

Welshman Evans has won one event so far this season in the FIA World Rally Championship and after the series made its return last weekend sits second in the Drivers Standings behind teammate Sebastien Ogier.

The Toyota driver said on his return to WRC action last weekend: “I’m not fully satisfied at the end of the rally but we come away with fourth overall and second place in the Power Stage.”

“There was obviously good pace there at points but I was just unable to deliver it consistently. We made some changes overnight and in the slippery conditions this morning (Sunday) it seemed to be a bit better.”

He added: “Then I struggled when it got quite rough, but it seems to always be a compromise here. Like always there’s some things we can work on but at the end of the day we’re here after a difficult weekend with a decent haul of points.”

The trio of Toyota drivers – him, Ogier and Kalle Rovanperä, all dominated on Sunday and made it a lockout of stage wins for the Japanese manufacturer and the team now have a four point advantage in the Manufacturer Standings over rivals Hyundai.

The next round of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship takes place as part of Rally Turkey next weekend.
