Welshman Elfyn Evans accepts there will be increased expectation after securing his first World Rally Championship podium finish.
Evans took third in his Ford Fiesta in last weekend's Rally Argentina, won by Northern Ireland's Kris Meeke.
The 26-year-old is in his second WRC season and M-Sport team boss Malcolm Wilson described the achievement as "historic."
"It's quite an important step in my career," Evans said.
"It's been something I have been looking for, especially this year, and the big thing is it will make us hungry for more."
Evans, and co-driver Daniel Barritt, are fourth overall in the Championship and will next be in action at the Rally of Portugal in May in the new Fiesta RS WRC.
