WRC - M-SPORT, All to play for in Australia

The FIA World #rally Championships are all to play for and M-Sport #Ford World #rally Team will fight to defend their crowns at next week’s season finale – Kennards Hire #rally Australia.
 
Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia are in prime position and hold a three-point advantage going into the title decider. The team also have a mathematical chance of defending their manufacturers’ title – albeit somewhat more challenging with a 25-point deficit overcome.
 
The EcoBoost-powered #Ford Fiesta WRCs are ready for the battles ahead, and the stage is set for a thrilling final showdown.
 
Team Principal, #malcolmwilson OBE, said:
 
“I can’t remember the last time we went into the final round with the championship as close as it is at the moment. This is rallying at its best and I’m excited to see how the action unfolds.
 
“Sébastien and Julien are in prime position – leading the standings by a slender three points but leading the standings nonetheless. 
 
“They know how to win championships and they know what it takes to win in Australia. The whole team are behind them, and we are determined to see them end their time with us in the best possible way.
 
“We also have a mathematical chance in the manufacturers’ championship. It’s a harder task for sure, but anything is possible and Elfyn and Teemu are both keen to play their part and deliver another strong result.
 
“I don’t think we’ve seen the end of the drama just yet, and #rally fans are surely in for a treat whatever the outcome next week.”
