Petter Solberg has vowed to drive flat-out through the final day of Rally Argentina in an effort to rescue a podium result.
The Norwegian had, once again, been in the fight for victory until a power steering problem dropped him from second to fourth on the final stage yesterday.
"As a team we say we never give up and we're not giving up here," he said. "We're going to be flat-out, we'll give it absolutely everything. I still believe there's a chance of a podium here and that's what I want. What happened was so disappointing, but we move on and we're on a charge this morning."
Solberg's co-driver Chris Patterson added: "We were absolutely gutted by what happened yesterday, but we're still positive. Like Petter says, we won't give up and we'll keep going – at some point this all has to change."
Looking forward to the morning's 30-mile Ascochinga stage, Patterson said: "It's going to be a monster, an absolute monster."
Going into the final day, Solberg is 28.4 seconds behind third-placed Sebastien Loeb and 1m16s off Sebastien Ogier's lead.
