Monte-Carlo: The Legendary Rallye Returned and Ogier Dominated
This year’s WRC championship got off to a solid start with the iconic Rallye Monte-Carlo, which took place in late January, on the opening round of what seems to be an exciting season for motorsports fans worldwide. Held in the Alpes-Maritimes, this legendary event had the best teams and drivers competing in both asphalt and gravel stages.
The competition was fierce, with drivers navigating through a well-known, challenging course, with Sébastien Ogier coming out on top. The former WRC Champion broke a new record, as he won in Monaco for the ninth time, becoming the most successful driver on this track to date. Ogier managed to beat his team-mate Kalle Rovanperä by just 18.8sec, resulting in a 1-2 finish for Toyota Gazoo Racing. Adding to the list of celebrations, Ogier’s co-driver Vincent Landais got his first-ever WRC victory.

Tänak’s victory was a testament to his talent, as the driver never dropped below second place during the whole event, giving his team and the fans a solid masterclass in driving despite the less-than-ideal conditions.
