Toyota Gazoo Racing boss, Tommi Makinen, has ensured that their approach will not change in the final two rounds of the championship despite them being in a position to snatch the manufacturers' title off Hyundai.
Speaking after Wales Rally GB, Makinen emphasised his team's great work under pressure.
“Still I think the next two rallies we need to go flat out and concentrate on doing our job as well as we can. That is not such a big gap but if we do any mistake it can be difficult,” he told wrc.com.
“It was a really great result. Great work during the whole weekend under big pressure. With this event is coming bigger pressure, two more rallies to go in the fight for the title and it was a great performance. I would say no mistakes at all.
“It doesn’t change anything. We are working according to the plan set a long time ago. We do some pre-event test for Spain and we’re confident it all works well.”
Hyundai boss, Andrea Adamo was not as positive
“Good is quite an optimistic word, just enough to stay in the lead.
“I can’t say we are happy with the overall result but being top of the standings will give us more commitment, if any more were needed, to be stronger in the final rallies.”
Hyundai hold an eight point lead in the manufacturers' race with rounds in Spain and Australia to run.
