|Podium for Østberg in Argentina|
|Sunday, 29 April 2012 21:36|
Good tactical driving gave Mads Østberg and co-driver Jonas Andersson third place in Rally Argentina after Dani Sordo had to drop out only kilometres before the finish line. The duo came to Argentina hoping for a top four result. After the first day the result was a fact.
With over four minutes down to the next car Adapta World Rally Team decided to use the rest of Rally Argentina as a preparation for Rally Greece. A strategy both Mads Østberg and team manager Morten Østberg was satisfied with.
The gap between Sordo and Østberg held steady throughout almost the entire rally. Østberg and Andersson drove safe and made sure that the fourth place was secured. But four kilometres before the finish line Sordo had to drop out because of some technical problems and Østberg ended on the podium.
In the last four WRC-rounds the duo has been on the podium three times. Morten Østberg says the team is a huge part of the results.
