The Citroen Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team reclaimed second place in the Manufacturers’ World Championship standings after both its cars finished in the top six at the Tour de Corse. Kris Meeke & Paul Nagle ended up fourth overall in Ajaccio, ahead of Mads Ostberg & Jonas Andersson in sixth place. Competing in a third DS 3 WRC, Stephane Lefebvre & Stephane Prevot finished just outside the points.

 

Road conditions remained fairly demanding in the south of Corsica for the final day of the Tour de Corse. Between Porto-Vecchio and Ajaccio, each crew had to complete the final three timed stages – and almost 95 kilometres – without any service break. Only two tyre changing zones were organised before the start of SS7 and the Power Stage.

 

Despite being surprised by damp patches in some sections, the Citroën Total Abu Dhabi World Rally Team drivers concentrated on defending their positions with the aim of moving back into second place in the manufacturers’ standings. 

 

Just 6.5 seconds ahead of Kevin Abbring as he set off on the final morning, Kris Meeke saw his rival go off the road on SS8. The Northern Irishman therefore finished just shy of a podium place in fourth.
