M-Sport Ford WRC team’s Gus Greensmith is looking forward to the 2019 FIA World Rally Championship season opening Rally Monte Carlo.

Speaking about the event he said:

The conditions at Rallye Monte-Carlo are so unpredictable and you have to be very aware and focused to pull together a winning performance. It’s crazy. One second it’s dry and the next it’s full snow! And the thrill of driving on snow with a Tarmac set-up is second to none! 

“A win in Monte is something that every driver wants to achieve, and we’ll be pushing towards that goal.  I’ve got a good feeling for the rally, and just need to bring it all together next week.

M-Sport Ford WRC team principal Richard Millener said:

Rallye Monte-Carlo is one of those events where experience and confidence count for a lot. Gus is a little on the back foot as he contested the event for the first time with a two-wheel-drive Fiesta R2 last year. But he certainly has the ambition and determination to do well, and I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw a strong performance from him. 

“He has the pace, and is developing a consistency that will work in his favour next week. If he can pull everything together there’s no reason why he can’t challenge for the top results in the inaugural round of this exciting new WRC 2 Pro Championship – a result that all of the competitors will be after.
