The WRC lands in the Rally of Australia with the titles of pilots, co-pilots and trademarks and determined, and with an atmosphere a bit strange for the launch of Volkswagen Motorsport. However, the last event of the season will decide the runner-up position. Thierry Neuville, Hayden Paddon and Dani Sordo on the part of Hyundai and Andreas Mikkelsen by Volkswagen still come with options to get the runner-up position of riders. The big favourite to add the second position of the competition is Thierry Neuville, although anything can happen in a test complex in which the stretches of speed sections and slow intertwine.
Thierry Neuville sum 143 points holds an advantage of 14 units on Mikkelsen. The belgian driver has a position of preference to get the runner-up position, although this should not be relied. In fact, the Rally Australia has only delivered one podium for Neuville, the harvest in 2013 with the Ford Fiesta RS WRC: “we all love to come to Australia. This year will be even more special since this is the last test of the season. It is fabulous to come here fighting for the second position. Both my co-driver as I hope to finish this season in style”.
For his part, Hayden Paddon competes in the can be referred to as your
rally house. The pilot new zealand with 129 points has options
limited to get the runner-up position, but the fact, compete against
their fans can be an extra motivation, for what you are willing to
get the first podium for Hyundai in the rally: “Australia is a
special appointment for us, since that is as close as possible to what
we could reach our ‘rally ‘ home’. We are in a position
really good in general and I am sure that we will be able to finish in
a good position“.
With Neuville and Paddon in the first team
Hyundai, Dani Sordo is relegated to the third Hyundai i20 WRC in the
Rally of Australia. It will be the third time that the pilot cantabrian compete
with the team Hyundai Motorsport N, but that does not mean that Deaf
you can get a good result in a test that has a
limited experience: “we Hope to be able to recover this weekend.
I know what we are capable of on gravel with this car. We are involved in
also in a fight race in the drivers ‘ championship, so it will be a
end really exciting for all of us“.
