Elfyn Evans missed his first WRC win by just 0.7 seconds

After 3 days and 350km of dusty gravel roads, Thierry Neuville beat Elfyn Evans in Rally Argentina by just 7 tenths of a second! That’s the 3rd closest finish in WRC history. It was especially heartbreaking for Evans (who has never won before) since he led most of the event but spent almost 2 days watching his comfortable lead disappear with engine and brake problems. He still could’ve held on if it wasn’t for a tiny mistake on the final stage. Those 7 tenths will haunt him.

Those 2 lost wins, and the 50 lost points, may come back to haunt Neuville later in the season.

When Elfyn Evans broke his suspension during Rally Finland he kept his car going by strapping the biggest spanner from his toolkit to the broken wishbone. Not only did it work, but it lasted 85km until Evans reached the Service Park. Nice work!
