Such a service always feels good, especially at the end of a day which was not an easy task. Left out of Sunday's big points race with the new scale du WRC, Adrien fourmaux still finished the Rally from Croatia with a smile. The Northerner left everything there during the last special, setting the best time. A performance rewarded with 5 units.

A nice way to console yourself after falling in the rankings when it was at 5e general's place. Beyond the fact that this is his first victory in Power Stage, it served as a pick-me-up for Adrien Fourmaux whose start to the season is very encouraging with two podiums (Sweden and Kenya).

Here is the pilot M-Sport invigorated before attacking the 5e round of the season on Portuguese dirt this weekend (May 9-12). A surface that he appreciates and on which he aims to continue.

« This victory [in the Power Stage] was perfect for confidence, he admits. It makes me think that now that I can do it on asphalt, I need to do it on dirt. For me it's a good thing, because I've always felt more comfortable on land. I can't wait to be in Portugal."

As for the M-Sport managers, this victory for Adrien Fourmaux during the Power Stage reinforced their idea that their driver is capable of winning rallies. Will this great first take place on Portuguese roads?
