What to say, it couldn't have gone worse. From beginning to end it was a race with negative implications, from the preparation to the final crash.
The race wasn't prepared well and with superficiality not carefully considering the difficulties and the kind of stages.
Ready to start and during PS 1 the turbocharger breaks, ending the stage with this handicap, alongside one minute penalty for having stamped in advance. We go on the second stage, with the aim to arrive at the service park to try repairing the damage, but after 2km the grand slam.
I misjudged the curve, losing concentration and the sensation of speed due to the broken turbocharger.
Car heavily damaged, destroyed morally for reducing the machine in this state.
A race that signed me a lot, from all points of view, strong hematoma on my left leg and three ribs bruised. Luckily we didn't get hurt.
