"I'll do anything I can to prove that I'm worth the two rallies and hopefully I will get back in the car later on in the season." Ostberg finished sixth at Rally Sweden, a rally which he has a great record at. Regarding the remainder of WRC events, Ostberg was hopeful of more drives with the successful team. Speaking to RallySport Magazine at the Otago Rally in New Zealand, Ostberg said there were other events in the air.

"There are other events on the 'maybe' list," he said. "Australia at the end of the year is also on the 'maybe' list, so I'm hoping I can do well and get some more events," he concluded. The next WRC event is Rally Argentina before the championship goes to Portugal, where Ostberg will return.
