Hen­ning Sol­berg is aim­ing to be back in the World Rally Cham­pi­onship in time for Rally Ar­gentina – but he wants a cur­rent spec­i­fi­ca­tion Ford Fi­esta RS WRC.

The Nor­we­gian re­turned to the WRC on last week’s Rally Swe­den for the first time since the first two rounds of last year’s cham­pi­onship. He is, how­ever, de­ter­mined to stay for 2016.

“It’s fan­tas­tic to be back,” he said af­ter fin­ish­ing sev­enth on the Karl­stad event. “I am talk­ing with spon­sors now, but for sure I want to be back – not for Mex­ico but for Ar­gentina and then af­ter as well. But it has to be the ’15 car for me. It’s re­ally im­por­tant I’m in the same car as the other guys.”

M-sport’s Mal­colm Wil­son said: “It’s al­ways good to have Hen­ning around, he’s a real char­ac­ter and he’s cer­tainly shown that he’s still well ca­pa­ble of driv­ing for a re­sult here. Be­cause of car avail­abil­ity, it might be tricky to get him in a 2016 car for Ar­gentina, but we’ll see what we can do.”
