AFTER SECTION ONE OF RALLYE MONTE-CARLO

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.”

Elfyn Evans (5th) said:

“It’s been an incredible start to the rally. The first stage [SS1] was worse than expected and we didn’t have a great run. The conditions were so tricky and we were conscious of not making a mistake on the first stage. Then the team made a fantastic tyre choice for the second stage [SS2]. We had the correct tyres in the car and that really proved valuable. A big thanks to everybody for what has been a good start to the event for us.”

A STAR STUDDED OPENER FOR M-SPORT

The 2015 FIA World Rally Championship kicked off in style this afternoon at a star studded event in the heart of Monte-Carlo.

Celebrities from the world of sport, film and music were invited to sample all that the championship has to offer with a very special passenger ride through the streets of the Principality’s world-famous Formula One circuit.

Moto GP star Eugene Laverty, Formula One race winner David Coulthard and Welsh songstress Elin Fflur all turned co-driver for the afternoon as Elfyn Evans demonstrated the power and performance of his Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

Eugene Laverty said:

“That was even better than I expected. To watch Elfyn [Evans] driving – his finger tips and the tips of his toes – was incredible. I was looking at him as much as I was looking out of the window and I definitely enjoyed it!”
David Coulthard said:

“I went into the car with the belief that rally drivers are the best in the world. I’ve been driven around a forest stage before, but to do it on Tarmac around corners I know was just incredible. Elfyn [Evans] was super smooth and committed – contending with constant changes of grip from dry to wet Tarmac – and he did it with much more speed than I thought possible. He’s a great young talent and I wish him a great start to the championship.”

Elin Fflur said:

“I’m not going to lie as I was terrified before I got into the car! I had seen Elfyn [Evans] driving on TV, but you don’t realise the speed and it was just so exciting. When I got the helmet on and was getting strapped into the car I did wonder what I had got myself into but it was absolutely amazing. One of the most exhilarating things I’ve ever done, and Elfyn made me feel very comfortable… bless him!”
