Cambridge driver has mixed weekend in Argentina

Rob Huff recovered from a problem in qualifying to leave Argentina in a strong position in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.

The Cambridge-based driver had an issue with the braking system of his Citroën C-Elysée in the free practice at the Termas de Rio Hondo circuit, forcing them to replace the brakes on the car and it took time to adjust them.

After qualifying, Huff had to start in 13th for both of the races.

He made good progress in the first race to finish seventh, and was then ninth in the second.

It leaves Huff seventh in the overall championship, 65 points behind leader Tiago Monteiro, and in the lead of the independent manufacturers’ championship.

There is a three-month break until the next race, in China, and Huff said: “We’ve had a completely different set-up to what we’ve been running before, and I really like it.

“This is also one of the toughest tracks for this car for sure; we saw all of the Citroëns didn’t have the pace of Volvo or Honda at all this weekend – of course the 20kg weight difference will have something to do with that, as that is worth 5km/h per lap.”

He added: “It’s a bit of a long gap until the next race, but we’re still there in the championship, and we can still do it.”
