M-Sport Ford‘s Esapekka Lappi admitted that Rally Estonia last weekend fast became a “very challanging weekend” as he went on to finish seventh on the event.

Lappi had a mixed weekend as the FIA World Rally Championship made its return following the coronavrius pandemic and after starting strongly, gradually fell down the leaderboard and was also leapfrogged by teammate Teemu Suninen on Sunday morning.

He commented on his weekend: “Firstly I have to say that the organisers have done a fantastic job this weekend. Everything worked smoothly with no problems and it really was an amazing job from everyone involved.”

It was good to be back in the rally car and to show some pace in the beginning, but after that it became a really challenging weekend for us. There is a lot of work to do on these type of stages, but hopefully in Turkey and Sardinia we can be stronger.”

Although the team only took a best place finish of Suninen’s seventh overall, they believe that they should be more on the pace in the next round of the revised 2020 calendar, Rally Turkey, which takes place next weekend.
