Elfyn Evans (5th) said:

“On the whole it was a good stage [SS10]. We were maybe a little too careful in the snow and ice but we went pretty hard where the conditions were good and I felt really comfortable in the car. It would be nice to have some more clear road like that but that might be asking for a bit too much at this rally!

A Day Of Classics - Volkswagen Trio Extends Its Lead At The 'Monte'

A Day Of Classics - Volkswagen Trio Extends Its Lead At The 'Monte'


Three doses of pure “Monte” – Volkswagen overcame extremely demanding conditions and a hugely difficult tyre selection to extend its three-car lead at the top of the overall standings at the Rally Monte Carlo. With just the final Sunday of rallying to come, Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F) go into the final Sunday of rallying with a 42.8-second lead over Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) with Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) a further 1:07.0 minutes back. The Volkswagen duos erred on the safe side on day three, particularly when it came to the precarious task of selecting the right tyres for the three Polo R WRCs. Given their overnight lead and the ever-changing road conditions, with a mixture of ice, compressed snow, wet and dry asphalt, all three opted for the safest variants for both the morning and the afternoon loops. They headed out with four Michelin supersoft slicks and two studded tyres in the morning, which they then replaced with four soft slicks and two winter tyres for the afternoon’s stages. Both options did result in a little lost time compared to the stage winners, but also allowed the Volkswagen duos to extend their lead over the best of the rest to at least 53.0 seconds.

Ott Tänak (4th) said:

“I’m very happy with our performance this evening. The first stage [SS1] was more or less full snow and ice. It was very tricky, but we managed to find a good rhythm. We stayed on the road with no mistakes and no moments which was a key factor. Then for the second stage [SS2] there was more Tarmac but still a lot of icy patches and a lot of gravel had been pulled onto the road. We made a good choice with the tyres, and I enjoyed it as much as I could. I think we’ve made a really good start to the rally.”

Volkswagen Off To A Successful Start On Opening Stages Of The 'Monte'

Volkswagen Off To A Successful Start On Opening Stages Of The 'Monte'


Volkswagen is second and third overall following the early exchanges at the Rally Monte Carlo. Day one of the opening round of the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) saw the drivers put through their paces, as they were constantly forced to make the transition between ice, snow and wet asphalt on what were already demanding night stages. Given the conditions, the starting order was a deciding factor in whether the drivers’ stage times were good or not so good. Sébastien Ogier/Julien Ingrassia (F/F), at the wheel of the new Polo R WRC, were embroiled in an exciting duel with Sébastien Loeb/Daniel Elena (F/MC, Citroën), which ended 1:1 after the first 40.99 kilometres of the rally. At the end of the opening day, leader Loeb and second-placed Ogier were separated by just 13.3 seconds. In third place are Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN) in the second of the second generation Polo R WRCs. Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) ended day one of the legendary "Monte" in seventh place.
