Thierry Neuville crashes in Rally of Portugal and has to give up

Thierry Neuville (Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC) had to give up on Friday after a crash in the seventh special stage of the Rally of Portugal, the fourth round of the World Rally Championship.

He lost three minutes and 25 seconds to drop to ninth place in the standings, 3: 15.8 behind the new leader, the Est Ott Tänak (Hyundai i20 Coupé WRC). The 32-year-old Oostkantonner was still second until his crash.

“I just got a bill when I saw the corner coming,” Neuville explained afterwards. “I tried to correct, but that didn’t work anymore. I think there was a stump that drove us to the side. We are now going to see whether we can repair the damage. ”

Later in the evening, Hyundai announced that Thierry Neuville and his co-driver Martijn Wydaeghe were not getting their car repaired for the eighth and final special stage of the day.

On Saturday there will be seven rides, including the double passage on Amarante, a calf runner of no less than 37.92 km. The day ends with a super special in the streets of Porto. On Sunday there will be five more classification rides, including the double passage at Fafe. On the second pass, this ride is the power stage and there are extra World Cup points for drivers and constructors to earn.
