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.”
