very hard work. When Rizvi won the 2009 drivers championship, we knew we
were good enough to repeat it again if we worked hard.
We strengthened our cars, developed more stamina in our drivers and
worked very hard in our partnerships, especially with our mechanical
partners to get the right car and right support.
Unlike in circuit racing, to be consistent in rally racing strong
resourcesand a strong support crew are needed . Hamzadeen further stated
