Podcast: Lappi on his Toyota chance

Toyota's test driver Esapekka Lappi will make his competitive debut in a Yaris WRC at next month's Vodafone Rally de Portugal and in the latest edition of the Regroup Podcast he explains why he's looking forward to the biggest opportunity of his career so far - but also feels a bit afraid.

Lappi talks to WRC Live presenter Becs Williams about the challenge facing him in 2017, how he found the Yaris WRC to drive after a long spell in Skoda's R5 Fabia and the relationship with his team-mates, including top man Tommi Mäkinen.

In the Podcast you'll also hear why Lappi has mixed feelings about reaching the end of stage two in Portugal and why in Toyota he might have already found a team for life.
