M-Sport World #rally Team overcame a day of attrition at the Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse today; but remains on course for a strong result with Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia holding second place behind the wheel of their Ecoboost-powered Ford Fiesta #wrc.
 
The four-time World Champions had been locked in an intense battle for victory – just 2.2 seconds adrift of the lead – before developing a hydraulic issue ahead of the final stage. Despite the frustrations, the Frenchmen remain on track to secure a strong haul of points for both their and the team's championship campaigns.
 
Ott Tänak also overcame misfortune today. Having re-joined the field under #rally 2 regulations this morning, the Estonian suffered an engine issue through the morning loop but was quick to respond through the second.
 
Keeping his Fiesta firmly planted to the sealed-surface roads, he and co-driver Martin Järveoja may have to forgo a healthy points' score for themselves, but are on target to secure valuable points for the team.
