Grégoire Munster achieved his best-ever WRC finish at Rally Italia Sardegna, aiming to maintain momentum into Rally Poland.

M-Sport Ford's rally sensation Grégoire Munster is setting his sights higher after a record-breaking performance at last week’s Rally Italia Sardegna, part of the prestigious FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

Munster achieved his first-ever top-five finish in the championship, a milestone that marks a significant turning point in his burgeoning career.

The event, which unfolds across the rugged terrain of Sardinia, saw Munster drive with exceptional skill and precision, culminating in a remarkable fifth-place finish.

"We reached our best result in the WRC, so we’re very happy with this. There’s still plenty of work to do and pace to find, but we’re always going in the right direction," said Munster.

"We now need to build on that and keep the momentum going into the next few events which are a bit different from Italy."

M-Sport’s team principal, Richard Millener, echoed Munster's optimism and highlighted the complexity of the Rally Italia Sardegna.

"We know Sardinia is a complicated event and that result was a really great achievement for them both. It’s really important that they’re taking the experience and learning from these rallies, they’re doing that and now they can look forward to the next three events, which are faster and slightly different in nature," Millener commented.

The next challenge on Munster's agenda is the ORLEN 80th Rally Poland, an event characterized by its fast tracks and unique demands.

The transition from the gritty, twisty paths of Sardinia to the swift, flat terrains of Poland presents a new set of challenges for Munster and his co-driver, Louis Louka.

However, the duo is ready to adapt and leverage their recent experiences to climb even higher in the championship standings.

Munster's strategy is not just about adapting to different terrains but also about continuous improvement and learning from each rally.

With the support of M-Sport Ford and the synergy with Louka Munster is rapidly evolving into a formidable competitor in the rally world.
