Colin Clark reviews a wild Monte day one

Seb Marshall joins the Voice of Rally to analyse a day of incidents and a thrilling lead battle

DirtFish’s Colin Clark is joined by top World Rally co-driver Seb Marshall to review an extraordinary first full day of the Monte Carlo Rally in the video above.

Inevitably world champion Ott Tänak’s ferocious crash is top of their list of incidents for analysis, and they also explain how Gus Greensmith’s outwardly comical exit came about.

Accidents aren’t the sole focus of Clark and Marshall’s discussion – they also look at how the battle for victory is shaping up, with particular attention on what might’ve been the most impressive day of Elfyn Evans’ WRC career so far.

They dig into Thursday leader Thierry Neuville’s up and down day, as he lurks right behind Sébastien Ogier and Evans’ current close Toyota 1-2.

Further back in the order, there’s particular praise for young star Kalle Rovanperä at the end of his first day at the top level.
