WRC rookie Eric Camilli is just hoping to finish this weekend's Rally Mexico.

The M-Sport Ford driver has found life pretty challenging in his first two events behind the wheel of a world rally car. He failed to finish both Rally Monte Carlo and Rally Sweden and has just eight rallies in total under his belt on gravel.

"I don't have big experience of rallying in general and it has been difficult to discover World Rally Car level and the rallies," Camillo told Motorsport.com.

"It hasn't been easy to start the season like this, but it's like that and now I want to think about the future and bounce back."

"The main objective is just to finish the rally, I'm not looking at times.

"That's my objective and also M-Sport's objective for me. I need to discover the car on gravel and it's very important for the future to finish and take the experience."
