Peugeot Sport director Olivier Quesnel says he has gained a greater understanding of Petter Solberg from working with the Norwegian in this week's Monte Carlo Rally.
Solberg drove a 207 S2000 for the first time on the Intercontinental Rally Challenge opener, but failed to finish after an alternator failure on the run back to the principality in the early hours of Saturday morning. The 2003 World Rally Champion had been in contention for a first Monte win before an errant tire choice dropped him from second to seventh on day two.
"Petter is a good guy, a nice guy," said Quesnel. "This is the first time we have worked together closely and I feel I know him more now. He's been very good, working for the whole team of Peugeot."
Quesnel said he would be happy for Solberg to drive for the Peugeot team again, most likely on May's Tour de Corse, which joins the IRC this year.
"Petter's focus is on the World Rally Championship this season," said Quesnel. "But maybe it's possible for him to come and drive [in the IRC] again."
