Well day 1 of Monte was certainly a bit of a shock, not so much the weather but the fact the that ironically its was Hyundai that made the best tyre choice and the old hands all fell on their sword choosing not to take 2 snow tyres as spares in case of snow, this is not the Acroplolis, there was a actually a good chance of snow after all, so why wouldn't they take that option ???

Well done to Bouffier, Evans and Meeke in Particular, and I suppose Sordo too. Bouffier could yet win this but obviously Ogier is closing fast so lets see what tomorrow brings. Great to see Meeke doing so well, I hope he keeps inside his comfort zone and keeps it on the island. Shame Neuville went out this morning, would of been good to see him leading on their 1st event, he had the tyres in the boot and im sure he planned on using them.

It would be great for M-Sport to get two cars on the podium and maybe see kris meeke get on there too somewhere, maybe even the top step. It is possible if Ogier slips up tr
