Hyundai Team Principal, Andrea Adamo, has outlined his pleasure at the team's successful tests in Finland during the past week. The South Korean manufacturer was the first team to begin testing their World Rally Car after the testing ban was lifted, but it didn't go without a hitch, “It has been important for us to test in Finland this week: to respond quickly to the incident that Thierry and Nicolas had last week and also to send a clear message that we are ready to start again and push forward together," Team Principal, Andrea Adamo said. The team's highest-placed driver in 2019 crashed the test car heavily on the first day of the test which initially halted testing. Adamo also highlighted the importance of the team improving on the fast and flowing Finland stages. "We are sorry not to be competing in Finland this year, but it is a perfect venue to test with great organisation and some challenging roads," he added. "This has allowed two of our crews to get back in the car, to build confidence and to get used to the high speeds of WRC once again. "We have also been working on some developments to the car, specifically to improve our performance on this surface. "We tackle these issues head-on and always keep things in the pipeline for future implementation or homologation. "It’s a merit to my people and our suppliers that we’ve been able to carry out three days of trouble-free testing, and nice to bring back some real-world rallying to lift the mood after a long and difficult period.”
