Before Rallye Deutschland, Mads Ostberg explained that the work in improving the Citroen C3 R5 continues. “For Portugal and Sardinia we had changes to the rear suspension which did not make the car any faster, but it made the car more forgiving and helped make the driver more confident," the popular Norwegian said. "This work was in parallel to changes made to the World Rally Car in 2017 and 2018.
"Still the problem remains that the car is difficult to set-up, to obtain a balance between ideal grip and car behaviour.
"It goes round in a circle, if you are not confident with the grip you are not confident when you are braking and that stresses the brakes. "In a couple of weeks some new suspension parts are expected to be ready for testing. My next rally is expected to be Rally GB and then I hope we can go to Catalunya.”   <blockquote class="twitter-tweet"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">This man had a lucky escape.
