Strong performance at Rally Greece for Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm

Esapekka and Janne were running in second place on Saturday before they were forced to retire from the day due to a technical issue related to the fuel-system of their Toyota GR Yaris Rally 1 Hybrid.

- The morning was really tricky. The surface had changed a bit compared to yesterday and the sandy roads didn’t seem to be suiting the car. When it was more abrasive and rough we were better. We were still in a pretty good position in second overall and the car felt much better on the second pass. But in the middle stage of the afternoon we had the issue with the fuel system and we weren’t getting the response from the throttle that we needed. It’s frustrating but there will be some positives to take from this rally: We had some challenges this weekend but we managed to be in the fight, which was really good.

They restarted again on Sunday and managed to score 1 point on the power stage.

- Today we were more or less driving through, as we needed to make sure we got to the finish to bring home some points for the team, but we managed to get one extra point from the Power Stage as well. It has been a very challenging weekend for the team. From my side I think we were managing quite well until we had to stop yesterday, the speed and performance was not too bad, but as a team we need to keep working, learn from the issues and move forwards.
