In the previous lap, Elfyn Evans was the strongest, thus returning to 5s4 from the leader Thierry Neuville. Sébastien Ogier and Ott Tänak are also very close.

SPECIAL INFORMATION

Great novelty of this edition with a pass at more than 1200 meters in elevation. The stopwatch begins with very narrow portions, then the profile becomes faster but nevertheless technical.

HIGHLIGHTS

Perfectly launched into a four-way fight from the start, Ott Tänak goes out at very high speed and sends his Hyundai i20 WRC in barrels. Unscathed following this outing, just like his co-driver, the 2019 world champion must give up.

For Elfyn Evans, everything is fine, however, with a second consecutive scratch which allows him to take the lead in this Monte-Carlo, 3s4 ahead of Thierry Neuville, still average in this time, and 5s5 on Sébastien Ogier.

Very interesting in SS3, Sébastien Loeb loses some ground this time but consolidates his position in front of Esapekka Lappi.

In WRC-2, Ole Christian Veiby keeps the overall advantage well while Adrien Fourmaux has just achieved a remarkable time, the 9th absolute and ten seconds ahead of the competition.

In WRC-3, Eric Camilli retains control despite a steering problem, only ten small seconds ahead of Stéphane Sarrazin, still as regular. Nice performance also from Nicolas Ciamin, the author of his best time since the start.

PILOT REACTIONS

Neuville
11: 52.1
“It was a very quick portion there (the exit from Ott), I slowed down a lot. I saw there was something when I saw Ott’s tracks. It was not a very good special for us. “
Ogier
11: 46.7
“These are very clean asphalt stages at the moment, so it’s a little more pleasant. I hope that Ott is going well, it was a very fast section with a big compression. “
Evans
11: 43.3
“The feeling was pretty good, but not absolutely perfect. There is already dirt brought back by the other cars, but that’s fine. I am rather surprised. “
Lappi
11: 55.3
“We are too slow but I cannot do better at the moment. We have to attack more. ”
Loeb
11: 52.5
“I had a good special. We had crossed tires and I don’t know if it was the best choice for this one, but it was a very fast special. ”
Rovanperä
11: 55.4
“The conditions in this lap were completely correct. I still have a lot of insurance but I see that the time compared to everyone is much better. “
Katsuta“It was a very delicate special and the high speed games were very difficult. I loved. “
Jocius“It’s a lot of learning. We do a lot of things with the car and we don’t watch the time at the finish. “
Camilli“It’s not so bad but my management is completely on the left! I thought I had a flat tire so I didn’t attack but it turns out I don’t have a flat tire. I have no damage so I don’t know where it came from. “
Ostberg“I felt good in the car this morning and I still feel good! ”
