Video: What we learned from the Monte Carlo WRC opener
Feb 3, 2018, 10:39 AM

The takeaway lessons from Sebastien Ogier’s victory in last weekend’s Monte Carlo Rally are demonstrated in this clip from the latest episode of Motorsport.tv’s The Flying Lap.

Rally journalist David Evans joins The Flying Lap host Peter Windsor to go over how Ogier won the rally, and explain why this doesn’t necessarily lay the foundations for another dominant season.

“If you looked in isolation, you’d say ‘Ogier, same again, very predictable’ but actually it wasn’t,” says Evans.

“We learned a lot from this rally.”

Evans reveals how key mistakes from rivals helped Ogier, and how the Frenchman’s M-Sport team watched on in horror as their driver headed into a ditch he couldn’t see while recovering from a spin.
