So, Monte Carlo is over and done. What did you make of it?
Congratulations to Loeb first and foremost, a deserved win.
It’s a real shame that Latvala crashed out, any other rally and I think he would have been OK, that piece of ice really caught him out. The important thing I guess is that he’s looking very competitive from the off.
Stand out drivers of the weekend for me are Hirvonen, Sordo and Tanak.
I think Hirvonen did a good job at his first rally in a DS3. He seemed to cope well with the brake issues he was having and I believe he managed to close the gap to Solberg quite well from memory.
Sordo got a stage win for Mini and to finish 2nd over all is a great achievement. Hopefully this means that their good result last year wasn’t a fluke. I bet Meeke is disappointed he isn’t getting a drive with them this year but i’m sure Ford and Citroen are glad that he isn’t there to take any more points off them.
Tanak had a solid result and he’s looking promising for the rest of the season. Good to see he could carry momentum from his good result in Wales.
