Breen still confident despite Monte test crash

Craig Breen says that he is being still confident despite the accident he had during his test for Rallye Monte Carlo.

The Irish driver was in Alsace last Wednesday to test for a last time his Puma before the WRC season opener in Monte Carlo in four days.

However, his preparation was forced to stop as he and his co-driver, Paul Nagle, had a crash in which the car rolled and they ended up in a ditch.

Despite their crash, the M-Sport mechanics managed to repair the damaged Puma Rally1 in time, therefore Gus Greensmith completed his final test one day after this crash as it was scheduled.

"Honestly speaking I still feel quite good, perhaps famous last words", Breen said.

"Literally the last comment I made to Paul before we set out on that run was ‘everything feels amazing and I feel really confident', and then that happened.

"But honestly the accident as much as it was a bit gut wrenching knowing the effort that has gone in to prepare the car, it was something very very unlucky.

"It wasn’t like I arrived into a corner a gear too high and ran out of road. 

"It was a series of unfortunate events that led us to going off the road, but confidence is still high.

"The work that has gone in has been so intense by everybody behind the scenes from M-Sport and Ford Performance and I think the excitement is still keeping that confidence high and that anticipation.

"I can’t wait to get going, I still feel good".
