OSTBERG PREPARES FOR SWEDEN WITH HOME WIN
time was the preparation for Sweden.
“We prioritised high pace during two long stages, where we pushed to the maximum – the way we have to push all the time in Sweden. I am very satisfied with the collaboration with Ola. We’re left with a really good feeling before Rally Sweden, where we certainly will be fighting at the top.”
M-sport’s team principal Malcolm Wilson says this week’s event offers the best possibility for an Ostberg win this year.
Wilson said: “We go to Sweden with our confidence high; Mads is always a contender on snow and he has achieved some fantastic results with the Fiesta in the past, coming close to winning the event in 2011. The whole team can see his ambition. He has grown as a driver and he is hungry for victory. This week provides him with an opportunity to secure that victory and if everything works in his favour then he certainly has the potential to deliver it.”
