Millener confident for the rest of 2022 after chassis development of Puma

The team principal of M-Sport Ford, Richard Millener, believes that his team will be strong in all events this year after the progress the engineers made with the chassis of Puma Rally1.

So far, the British squad has achieved a 1-3 in Monte Carlo as Sebastien Loeb won and Craig Breen finished in the lowest place of the podium there while Gus Greensmith finished in fifth position overall in Sweden.

In fact, M-Sport Ford was leading the manufacturer's championship at the end of Rallye Monte Carlo, but dropped to second position after Rally Sweden.

"We’ve worked on a lot of things with this car", Millener said.

"One of the biggest things is the chassis, partly due to the new spaceframe, but also a lot of work in ensuring we have the best chassis and the best geometry with everything we’ve learned from the Fiesta.

"We’ve managed to increase the speed and reactivity of the car, which is something the drivers often talked about – the Fiesta being a little more slow to react. 

"We’ve made good progress there.

"We’re happy we have a really good base on both gravel and Tarmac. 

"I think we should be able to compete on all surfaces this season".
