Adamo praises Hyundai people for hard working under pressure

The team principal of Hyundai Motorsport, Andrea Adamo, speaks very highly of his people who did not never give up after the tough events they had, but they continued to work very hard.

The Korean team is currently in second position in manufacturer's championship and thanks to the double podium it had at Ypres Rally Belgium it decreased its gap from the first manufacturer team, Toyota, from 59 to 41 points.

Hyundai Motorsport was unlucky in four events in a row where it might have won them if there were not some reliability issues in car's suspension that led to the loss of the lead and to drivers' retirements.

"I think a never give up attitude is the only way I know how to win", said Adamo.

"There are many romantic ways to say but I like movies and there is a nice movie called The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel and the actors used to say, 'In the end everything will go well, if it doesn't because it is not the end'.

"I have to say it has been a bit tricky in the last month and I'm really pleased with the way my people have reacted and stayed together as a team.

"I know how much people in the company have been under pressure because it has been a tough month, so it's nice to be here.

"It is important for all. 

"It is important for the team and also the people at home, let's call them of course team, because the last events have been a bit complicated for us.

"When things like that are happening the worst thing that can happen is having people become scared and be under pressure, and I was really feeling it.

"I was trying to be the shelter for my team and protect everyone and put responsibilities on my shoulder, but let them work hard as they were working before.

"It has not been one of the easiest times of my life let me say".
