Rallye Monte Carlo 2018 WRC round 1

Post  Sal the 2nd on Mon Jan 22, 2018 2:35 pm

It all kicks off again this week.

Seems to be plenty of snow and ice but guess its going to be the typical Monte lottery. My money is on Ogier however if Hyundai manage to make their suspension and steering out of something other than twigs Neuville could nick it. Anybody from here going out to watch?

As a Fordie I would love M-Sport to win again but I would think Hyundai for the Manufacturers title and probably Neuville for the Drivers...

seems no time at all since end of last season, happy days!! i see motorsport tv are showing the whole championship, and thats on freesat for those who have it...
my hopes for kris are same as every year, that he settles for consistency in well placed finishes rather than pushing too close to the limit and risking a dnf....not sure its in his dna though lol Rolling Eyes

nice pix from the monte chris, good to see kris aiming at the title, though it would take a combination of many factors for his goal to be achieved...

You know if it's dry then the Citroens might just shade it...

So far Ogier sailing away with it. Neuville had an off last night as did Kris who now seems in a fit of depression. Breen was showing good pace but hit a rock this morning and now having brake issues. Mikkelsen out after the alternator belt failed. Toyota looking good with Tanak leading their charge in 2nd...

Great win for M-Sport/Seb but i think they might regret Neuville nicking 5th from Evans on the final stage by 1 sec AND picking up a haul of powerstage points. Toyota looked competitive as well.

kris not at all happy with his weekend which I think is a bit out of order...fourth is a lot better than a dnf and he leads the citroen team so i hope he calms down and accepts what was a good result to start season, if not earth-shattering...

Ogier as expected but the likes of Neuville, Evans & Meeke made decent points out of a difficult weekend, the first two were a long way back on Day 1.

As you say points make prizes, and some points are better than nothing at all
