Evans promises to return even stronger in the future after title loss

Elfyn Evans vows return even stronger in the future after his losing this year's championship and Rally Monza defeat having mixed feelings for the end of this season.

The Welsh driver headed to the WRC finale in Monza with a 17-point disadvantage over Sebastien Ogier and he was fighting with the last one for the win of Rally Monza throughout the weekend.

However, he dropped 16,8 seconds and he lost the fight for the win of Rally Monza when he stalled twice in Stage 15.

In fact one stall was caused by the fact that he locked up the brakes and he could not get the car turned resulting in going into the bales in this stage.

Eventually, he finished second overall at the end of Rally Monza and scored only one point in Powerstage, therefore he finished this year's championship with 207 points, 23 points behind Ogier.

"It was my best season in the championship and I was happy to fight for the title", Evans said.

"If you had asked me two years ago then you would have said I was probably dreaming if I was going to fight for the title two years in a row. 

"From that side we can be happy.

"Then, when you are in the moment, you always want more. 

"Now the feeling I have makes we more hungry for the future.

"I wanted more – you always want more. 

"I’m disappointed to miss out on the title, but that was always a long shot. I’m also disappointed that I made a mistake and that cost me the chance to win this rally.

"There’s always more to do.

"The work just never stops and I’m always pushing for more and more. 

"I’m really happy for the team this year, we worked hard and to take the manufacturers’ championship is a great result – now we’re looking forward to next season.

"We have new cars, new regulations and a clean sheet of paper. 

"But we’ve still got plenty to do before we get to Monte".
