Toyota Gazoo Racing driver, Elfyn Evans is 'determined' for a good result at Rally Sweden after not capitalising on his winning position in Monte Carlo. Evans, who led after Saturday at the opening round admitted he was frustrated at letting his opportunity slip. "(We were) a bit frustrated after Sunday, to be honest. Obviously we were in the shot to win the event and let it slip away a little bit on Sunday for one reason or another," he explained. "Things didn’t just quite click so, yes, if anything I’m a little bit more determined. "Obviously, you know when you’re in that position, you always want to come out on top," he concluded. Whilst the conditions are different to the Monte, Evans also sees the similarities in the changeable aspect of the icy gravel roads.

"It’s part of rallying, it always has been, perhaps not quite to this level of how extreme it might become," Evans explained of the task of adapting to the conditions this weekend. "If studs are really losing at a high rate, it will be difficult by the time we come to the end of some of the stages with the icy sections. But it will be the same or similar for everyone. "It’s a competitive field with a lot of good cars so anything could happen. "We know all the challenges we are going to face, and we know there’s going to be quite a bit of unexpected challenges that come our way. But we have to try and adapt, and deal with them the best we can," he concluded.
