Breen overjoyed with 2017 Citroen deal

Widespread opinion is that Irish driver Craig Breen’s fifth place in Corsica was even more impressive than his third place in Finland this year.
Recent news after Corsica that he will be a member of the new Citroen Racing world championship team gave him a special bouyancy in Salou before Rally Catalunya. His new spirit was never so evident as at the pre-event Press Conference at Salou.
“I am still trying to come to terms with the whole thing (his new new contract with Citroen),” he said.
“It was a dream come true, this is something I’ve wanted since I was a child. The moment I found out properly was during Corsica and it was difficult to sleep that night.
“This is a big moment in my career. I need to take it and use the opportunity the best we can. I love what I do. This is the most amazing job in the world, where I get out of bed every day with a spring in my step.
“Perhaps I didn't enjoy it so much in the last couple of years when there was a bit of a bad period in my career. I struggled a lot and everything seemed like it was such hard work, the enjoyment had gone a little bit.
“Where I am now there’s so much energy, so much focus. Me and Scott [Martin, co-driver] just need to get on with our jobs.
“I think Finland was the key this year, now I need to get the job done and to work hard. But it’s so important to finish every stage with a smile on my face and to appreciate where I am.”
