This doesn’t change anything about a clever opening delivered by EKS Audi Sport that brought both cars into a final.”

In a evening, Ekström was relegated from initial to sixth position since he allegedly bumped Petter Solberg’s Volkswagen off lane on a approach to Turn 1.

“I don’t share this opinion, though honour a preference by a stewards of a meeting,” pronounced Ekström. “I’m quite contemptible for a group that worked tough and good in winter. In a final, we had 4 uninformed tires that done a difference. On a whole, a weekend was really exciting. In sleet on Saturday, we were using well, usually a starts weren’t fantastic. In dry conditions on Sunday, we were primarily struggling a small with a starts too, though in a semi-finals and a final they worked well. That kept a possibility for feat alive.”
