Fourmaux secured his third podium of the season in Poland, finishing third.

Previous podium finishes came from Sweden and Kenya. In addition to these, Fourmaux placed fifth in Monte Carlo and fourth in Portugal.

The 29-year-old Frenchman returned to the highest level of the sport this season after a one-year hiatus and has cemented his place as a top driver in the main class.

“This was a fantastic weekend for the entire team, commented M-Sport team principal Richard Millener.

“To see Adrien consistently set top times all weekend on an unfamiliar event to him was fantastic to watch Millener,” continued.

Fourmaux has yet to win a main class race in his career, but at this pace, it’s only a matter of time.

“His determination and improvement since the start of the season means he is now a contender on every event.”

Among M-Sport’s drivers, Gregoire Munster also had a decent race this time.

“Also well done to Grégoire, he’s given a really solid performance here. He has built on, and almost bettered, his last event in Sardinia, because his pace has been closer to the top guys here. All in all, a really successful weekend,” Millener enthused.
