Wil­son: Camilli must fin­ish in Ar­gentina

Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

M-sport team prin­ci­pal Mal­colm Wil­son has told Eric Camilli he wants to see him at the fin­ish of Rally Ar­gentina with­out any in­ci­dents.

The young French­man dam­aged his Ford Fi­esta RS WRC for the third event in suc­ces­sion at last week’s Rally Mex­ico – tak­ing a wheel off in the Ibar­rilla stage. His rally had al­ready been spoiled when he suf­fered a punc­ture and dropped five min­utes on the open­ing day.

Wil­son said: “From what we can see, Eric hit a rock that was pulled out by Jari-matti [Lat­vala], who was run­ning di­rectly ahead of him. In­cred­i­ble, Jari-matti’s not even driv­ing for me any­more and he’s still cost­ing me money! Was Eric un­lucky? I guess he was, but maybe he shouldn’t have been cut­ting quite so much.

“I’ve told him I want him at the fin­ish in Ar­gentina. The good thing is the pace he showed, he was up on Mads [Ost­berg, team­mate] on some stages, which isn’t bad for his first time here.”
