Corrado Provera: Many wins should follow

How do you feel after the first victory of the Peugeot 307 WRC?
Corrado: “I feel justice after we have lost victory in Cyprus. The 307 WRC was very fast since a long time, but we missed confirmation. We only have a theoretical chance left on winning the titel in the manufacturers WRC. For us it now is all about to gain as many wins for the 307 WRC as possible.”

From 2005 the Peugeot works team has a new tyre partner…
Corrado: “We have signed a 3-year contract with Pirelli. In this it all is about the motorsport. In first equipment for new cars Peugeot will continue working together with several tyre manufacturers. Since years Pirelli was interested in a cooperation, butthen there was no way. We hope for a more level playing field when both tyre manufacturers equip two or more teams.”

On the rallye Deutschland Cedric Robert is for the first time nominated for the manufacturers WRC. What is the background?
Corrado: “Freddy Loix, who should drive the second car on all asphalt rallies, had a very long break at WRC level. Since Sweden in February he didn’t start in the WRC any more. We wanted to take pressure from his shoulders. Freddy should in Germany show his abilities without having the stress of the manufacturers WRC on his mind.”
