The final day here in the Azores has been another amazing day. The rally started in dreadful conditions with driving rain and strong winds and finished in glorious sunshine.
Kris and Paul have again demonstrated why they are real title challengers with a fantastic display of controlled driving. Unlike our victory in Brazil, this time the varying conditions and the increased competition have made this victory even more special.
Now we must get ready for the next rally in Belgium, where Kris and Paul will have to adapt to the Ypres tarmac.
