Millener praises Fourmaux's way to win CER

The team principal of M-Sport Ford, Richard Millener, speaks highly of Adrien Fourmaux's efforts to finish first overall at Central European Rally saying that his driver deserves the chance to compete at the top level in Japan.

The French driver managed to climb from 15th to first overall at the end of Central European Rally last weekend, but he was not the winner of this event due to the fact that his entry was as not nominated whch means that he scored zero points. It was the first time for him that he finished in first place overall in WRC2 class and proved that the Ford Fiesta MKII Rally2 is a competitive car as it has been two years since M-Sport Ford won a WRC2 event. Last but not least, it must be mentioned that Pierre-Louis Loubet will skip Rally Japan in less than two weeks, thus the Malcolm Wilson's team named Fourmaux to join Ott Tanak at the squad.

"Firstly I must give a special mention to Adrien and Alex", Millener said. 

"To go from 15th to 1st over the course of the weekend is incredible. 

"The culmination of hard work from the team pushing through the Rally2 updates, to his mechanics and engineer giving him the best car and setup, to the crew themselves, showing what they are really capable of - it was all just perfect. 

"I am so happy for them both and they really deserve their chance again in Rally1 next month".
