Neuville returns to Kenya for revenge

Thierry Neuville is looking to bounce back in Kenya after his retirement there in 2021 which left him disappointed.

The Belgian driver was leading Safari Rally Kenya of 2021 until the first Sunday stage where he was forced to retire due to a rear right suspension damage.

According to what he said to WRC+ last year, he believed that the suspension damage preexisted and it was not his fault that he lost the win of Safari Rally Kenya 2021.

"Last year’s event was tough", Neuville said.

"I don’t think we deserved that retirement, I think we had driven well and we deserved the win. 

'This year we are out for revenge.

"I have some good memories from my first visit to Kenya last year. 

"It was a real adventure, as we got to discover the country, the culture, the beautiful scenery and the wildlife.

"But unfortunately, we left feeling disappointed as we were clearly in the lead and could have easily won the rally if it had not been for a small issue".
