    M-Sport is confident Elfyn Evans's co-driver Dan Barritt will be fit in time for the next World Rally Championship round in Corsica after being injured in their Mexico crash.
    Barritt was diagnosed with mild concussion and advised not to continue after a sixth-gear roll on the rally's fourth stage last Friday.
    He is scheduled to participate in M-Sport's pre-Tour of Corsica test from next Monday, and Autosport understands he is expected to to recover in time for the rally itself - which team principal Malcolm Wilson said was the main focus.
    "It goes without saying that the priority is the rally - that's where we need Dan fit," said Wilson.
    "I'm not so worried about the test. Let's see how he feels next week."
    Evans admitted the accident was one of the biggest of his career.
    "The cause of the crash was probably a bit of over-confidence in making the notes over the bumps," Evans told Autosport.
    "I should have taken some of the speed off, if we'd come down a gear we'd probably have got away with it, but we flew so far and landed on the next jump.
    "These cars deal with things so well now - we'd had a really bad dip on the first stage, I dropped two gears and it felt like nothing."
    Evans was running third at the time of the crash. He initially continued before withdrawing at the next service when Barritt's condition was assessed.
    "It's a real shame, we were settling in well and the times were there," Evans added.
    "I was a little bit disorientated in the crash. We rolled so quickly, I jumped out of the car and ran to slow down the next car.
    "When the dust settled I saw the wheels were all still on the car and they were pointing in the right direction - so we jumped in and went.
    "If I'd pushed the starter straight away, we might not even have lost 20 seconds."

    Citroens have a large tripmeter in front of the driver, so not really difficult.

    Yep, but the real bombshell of this Mexico Rally was Loeb top form. I wasnít able to follow the rally but after seeing the highlights and look at SSís times itís hard not to beg for a full time return of the big champ. Itíd be great for Citroen and the WRC!

    Btw, it was funny to hear Ogier saying, I believe after leg 1, that he was only worried with Meeke; does anyone doubt his main goal was to pass Loeb and get an undisputed win in order to show heís the new king? Itíll be nice to follow the second roundÖmaybe the old king will rule again!

    To me, Ogier was taking a lot more risks in Mexico. I think Loeb had Ogier a little pumped up.

    To be honest, it should not even be an issue considering Loebs time away from WRC and his age, but I guess he is that good. Would be nice to see Loeb be ahead of Ogier in Corsica or Spain. I'm not sure if Loeb would have held off Ogier in Mexico, but based on his interviews he said he was not pushing at all. Just driving..

    Like Tanak said, "it's like we have not improved at all while he was away" lol.

    Never do anything you wouldn't want to explain to a paramedic.
