"Pontus Tidemand eight - uncertain future in the WRC"
"Ott Tänak dominated the Rally Sweden."
"And leads the world CUP for the first time."
"It has been an amazing weekend," he says."
"at the same time as the Estonian dominated Rally Sweden in 2019 and took his first victory so it was tougher for Pontus Tidemand. The swede who had a contract over two rounds in Monte Carlo and in Sweden, had technical problems the first day and dropped in comparison with the lead."
"– On Friday afternoon, we could finally start to enjoy the race and take in the whole of rallyfestivalen despite the fact that we also had trouble with the instyrningen and could not really be on as we wanted, " says the swede."
" – When we finally found the right with the car, it was superb fun to drive, especially on those fantastic legs, which without a doubt are my favorites in the world CUP. Given our starting position, I think we did it well, it is simply not possible to do so much more from here. I was very satisfied with what we delivered in the afternoon and felt that it was now the rally would have started so we could have fought in a completely different location."
"Pontus Tidemand eight in Rally Sweden to 2019"
"Then he advanced, but it was enough just to åttondeplats total. Still, he was ahead of the reigning champion Sebastien Ogier, the experienced Jari-Matti Latvala and teamkollegan Teemu Sunninen who made a mistake when he was in the lead of the rally."
"– It feels like a dream come true when I get to drive a WRC car here, " he says."
"" I have had a lot of fun, and it feels as if I have improved me as, but you need time to get used to this type of car."
"What happens now, he can not answer. He has nothing more clear this season."
"– My next rally? I don't really know, but I really hope that there will be more in years."
"Kristoffersson on the podium in Rally Sweden to 2019"
"IN the WRC2 climbed Johan Kristoffersson up to third place, barely ahead of Emil Bergkvist, but in the JWRC it was a Swedish victory thanks to world CUP-debutante writer Tom Kristensson."
"– It is absolutely fantastic, I have no words, " says Tom Kristensson, who won the european CHAMPIONSHIP last year."
"the Next world CUP race will be decided in Mexico in the second weekend in march, but then there will be no Swedish participation in the WRC. For the JWRC, it is a month's break, the world junior CHAMPIONSHIPS are on the program in Corsica the last weekend in march."
