He said: “I am hoping to do that rally [in Rome] but it’s not clear yet. I like to look one day ahead [but] I hope to be back in the ERC on a later occasion this year.”

Of his early exit in Poland, Østberg added: “We had a hard impact on the left-hand front wheel on SS6, after I hit a stone in a cut. I was not 100 per cent happy with the steering after that.
