That isnt going to polish out. His boss was on the WRC+ commentary and was less than impressed...

I really feel for Malcolm Wilson and the MSport staff, a monster crash and a rich kid that cant even keep pace with the R5 cars, why would you bother going to work on Monday?

Predictable win for Ogier however Elfyn was his closest rival so lets hope for reversed championship positions come year end!

I used to get excited with the Monte Carlo but it was all a bit dull and predictable. I suspect Tanak sees the huge mistake he made leaving Toyota. Hopefully, Breen might muster a bit more interest from me in the next round.

There is more competition than when Loeb cleaned it all up. Watching Ogier fight back from the puncture shows just how good he is. 8 wins across 5 manufacturers just phenomenal

100%, Ogier is incredible, and he was at his best on the Monte, there was competition, as much as ever, but this past weekend he was just better than anyone else by a clear margin

So..... appreciate its just 1 stage in to the Arctic rally, so massively premature for me to make this statement, but putting funding/sponsorship to one side, it just shows to me the continued and baffling madness of Breen not having a full drive.

I think I would enjoy WRC events more if I could keep up with the running order, seems to me Toyota are paying for their good Monte?

Yes. Though that has been the way long-term. Seems there is never a complete perfect running order but this is better than the stupid shit they pulled in the mid naughties to ham tie wrc when it was starting to eclipse F1

Craig dropped back a bit today but even the god like Ogier showed his human side getting buried in a snowbank and is now super-rallying for day 3.

Meanwhile the wunderkids Kalle and Oscar are having great outings, Solberg in 6th in his first ever WRC car outing, wow!

Hyundai will be pleased - 3 of the top 4 slots to them. Solid drive by Breen which will have done him no harm at all.

Craig being pretty tough on himself on social media. Time away from the WRC car, little in the way of testing and event he's never done I think 4th is great and didnt deny Thierry drivers points whilst doing the team points no harm at all. Ok so Oliver really seemed to shine however there's a big difference between driving with no pressure and being asked to do a job like CB had to do. Think Adamo will be a pretty happy boy today.
