Portugal win out of the question for Kris Meeke
Kris Meeke has ruled himself out of the fight for victory on this week’s Rally of Portugal – his first WRC outing since Sweden in February.
Meeke has missed the last two WRC rounds, focusing on the development of Citroen’s C3 WRC, which he was testing in Portugal again last week.
“I’m definitely not short on mileage,” Meeke told MN. “But you do miss the competition. Getting back into the rally environment is something I’m very much looking forward to, it’s been a long time since Sweden in February.”
Meeke says switching between the C3 and DS 3 is no problem.
“I don’t think people need to be worrying too much about what I’m doing this week,” he said. “OK, we have a good place on the road, but I’m here to stay sharp and get the mileage, that’s all. I have no championship fight to think about.”
