2018 WRC: Citroen Racing WRT Terminates Participation of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle


Due to an excessively high number of crashes, some of which were particularly heavy and could have had serious consequences with regard to the crew’s safety, and given that the risks involved were unjustified by the sporting stakes at play, Citroën Racing WRT has decided to terminate the participation of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle in the 2018 WRC.

The decision becomes effective from the 2018 Rally Italia Sardegna and we will shortly be announcing the team’s line-up of crews for the remainder of the 2018 season. The entries of C3 WRCs for Craig Breen / Scott Martin and Mads Ostberg /Torstein Eriksen still stand for Sardinia.

Suninen soars to new heights in Portugal after scrapping F1 dream


Young Finn seals first ever podium to continue remarkable World Rally rise.

Teemu Suninen was born into racing. Not rallying. With Kimi Raikkonen as his hero, he was set on emulating Finland’s last Formula 1 world champion. Then he ran out of money.

Putting his multiple karting trophies aside, he entered a competition to find a rally driver, won it and hasn’t looked back since.

2018 WRC: Portugal victory sees Neuville regain championship lead from Ogier


Neuville stays out of trouble on the final day to land second win of the season.

Thierry Neuville won Vodafone Rally de Portugal on Sunday afternoon to swing the FIA World Rally Championship pendulum firmly in his favour.

Victory at the gruelling four-day dirt road encounter promoted Neuville to the top of the standings as the series approaches its midpoint. After starting 10 points behind reigning champion Sébastien Ogier, the Belgian leaves Portugal with a 19-point advantage.

Neuville steered his Hyundai i20 away from trouble during a weekend of attrition that sidelined many frontrunners to win by 40.0sec from Elfyn Evans’ Ford Fiesta.

Fellow title challengers Ogier and Ott Tänak ended pointless after falling foul of Friday’s rock-strewn speed tests and Neuville pressed home his advantage by claiming four extra bonus points in the final Power Stage.

2018 WRC: Neuville doubles lead at Rally de Portugal to boost title hopes


Belgian gives world title hopes a major boost at Vodafone Rally de Portugal.

Thierry Neuville starts tomorrow’s short finale with a 39.8sec advantage in his Hyundai i20, and victory would propel him back to the head of the FIA World Rally Championship for the first time since February.

Conditions were more benign than yesterday when rock-strewn dirt roads caused carnage among the frontrunners, and the Belgian focused on the double pass through the 37.60km Amarante speed test, the longest of this sixth round of the series.

2018 WRC: Thierry Neuville leads after a crazy opening day at Rally de Portugal


Chaotic opening leg destroys hopes of many Vodafone Rally de Portugal frontrunners.

The lead changed hands on six occasions on rock-strewn dirt roads near the Spanish border before the Belgian Thierry Neuville took a 17.7sec advantage in his Hyundai i20 over Elfyn Evans. Dani Sordo was a further 6.6sec adrift in third.

WRC leader Sébastien Ogier, previous round winner Ott Tänak, Toyota Yaris team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala and Hyundai duo Andreas Mikkelsen and Hayden Paddon were all sidelined as the gruelling roads took a heavy toll.

2018 WRC: Argentina hero Ott Tanak targets dominant win on Portugal grave


The Estonian is the man to beat and is confident of continuing his fine form.

Ott Tänak is the man to fear at Vodafone Rally de Portugal (17 - 20 May) following his stunning victory in Argentina last month.

Tänak dominated in south America in a way nobody has previously managed in new-era World Rally Cars, establishing himself at the forefront of the challengers to defending WRC champion Sébastien Ogier.

Nobody could challenge the Toyota Gazoo Racing driver as he reeled off a remarkable run of 10 fastest times in 12 special stages to charge to the top after an early mistake, and the 30-year-old Estonian is understandably bubbling with confidence.

One million fans no problem for ex-rally star Mouton in Argentina


FIA's WRC Safety Delegate reveals the logistics behind staging popular event.

Crowd control is vital at any sporting event, but keeping just over 60,000 football fans smiling inside River Plate’s Estadio Antonio Vespucio Libert, home of Buenos Aires club River Plate, pales into insignificance in comparison to Michele Mouton’s job.

Mouton made her name as the world’s fastest lady and she remains the only female winner of a World Rally Championship round. She didn’t stop at one, either, she won four and came within a whisker of the 1982 title.

Estonian produces thrilling WRC drive to edge ahead of Meeke and Neuville.

Ott Tänak recovered from an early error to lead YPF Rally Argentina on Friday night after arguably the best single day drive of his career.

Tänak stormed back up the leaderboard, winning five of the next six special stages to build a 22.7sec advantage over Kris Meeke and leave his rivals open-mouthed.

Without ever needing to drive flat out, the FIA World Rally Championship leader ended the penultimate day with a 44.5sec advantage after six speed tests in the northernmost tip of the Mediterranean island.

In contrast to yesterday when the world champion won three of the four speed tests in his Ford Fiesta, he drew a blank today, preferring a measured pace which still proved sufficient to leave him with a comfortable lead ahead of tomorrow’s finale.

Frenchman dominates opening Corsica Linea - Tour de Corse leg to leave rivals floundering.

A peerless performance from the FIA World Rally Championship leader on the first all-asphalt encounter of the season enabled him to build a 33.6sec lead in his Ford Fiesta over a frustrated Thierry Neuville.

Like everyone else, Neuville had no answer to Ogier’s pace as the Frenchman won the first three of four twisty and narrow speed tests near Bastia. Such was his mastery that Ogier drove around a handling problem which threatened to spin his car at tight hairpins.

Sébastien Ogier avoided trouble on Saturday at Rally Guanajuato Mexico while his rivals faltered in intense heat on dirt roads and, after starting more than half a minute off the lead in the morning, the Frenchman will now carry a 35.9sec advantage into Sunday’s finale.

The reigning five-time WRC champion strung together four consecutive speed test victories in the mountains near León in his Ford Fiesta to put him on the verge of a second season win with Sunday’s short leg remaining.

“It’s been a perfect day. I pushed as hard as I could and it worked for us. We had a bit of tyre wear late this afternoon so I didn’t push as hard as I would have wanted,” he said.

2018 WRC: Sensational comeback for Loeb as Frenchman pushes Sordo hard


Sébastien Loeb, driving his first WRC rally for more than three years and his first dirt road round since May 2013, turned back the clock to win two Rally Guanajuato Mexico speed tests as he hunted down Dani Sordo on Friday afternoon.

The 44-year-old Frenchman trailed the Spaniard by almost 18 seconds before consecutive stage victories vaulted him into second place in a Citroën C3, 7.2sec behind. It could have been even more of a fairytale comeback had it not been for an earlier overshoot.

Frenchman holds off Tänak for home win at Rallye Monte-Carlo season opener


Defending FIA World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier has made the perfect start to his bid to clinch a sixth drivers’ crown by mastering the elements to clinch his fifth Rallye Monte-Carlo in a row on home soil.

The M-Sport man began the final day of the season curtain-raiser 33.5sec ahead of the pursuing Ott Tänak following a sustained push from his Toyota rival, but he immediately quelled any thoughts the Estonian may have had of launching a late bid for glory by going 11.5sec faster than the Toyota Yaris driver on SS14 (La Bollene Vesubie - Peira Cava).

2018 WRC: Tanak gives chase to Ogier


Estonian hot on tail of Frenchman heading into Rallye Monte-Carlo finale.

Sébastien Ogier is just four speed tests away from a popular home WRC victory at Rallye Monte-Carlo, but the Frenchman will need to hold his nerve in the Sunday finale after impressive Toyota debutant Ott Tänak kept him on his toes throughout Saturday.

Ogier and Tänak began leg three of the season curtain-raiser separated by just under 15 seconds. Although the Frenchman had more than doubled that advantage come day’s end, the figures do not paint the full picture of a see-saw scrap that at one point saw him more than a minute clear.

The M-Sport man produced a virtuoso performance on the SS9 opener, maximising his favourable road position in treacherously snowy conditions to extend his lead over Tänak to 1min 18.4sec – but then the Estonian fought back.
