Road Book

Pure pleasure!

What a rally! The tracks through the Welsh forests are quite simply magic… fast and slippery, and if you add to that the tyipical ‘Rally GB’ conditions -Mud, rain, fog- you simply get one of the most exciting events of the year. Despite a little ‘glitch’ and a 10 seconds penalty on the first day, […]


Hello everybody! So, I’m not going to beat about the bush… Some rallies are great and some aren’t: 2017 Rally Germany definitely belongs to the second category. Things had started well, though, and after a great and very tricky Super Stage and a Dantean weather in the vineyards on Friday, we were in third position […]

Leaders of the championship!

For the first time in my life, I’m writing to you as the leader of the World Rally Championship!  It’s been far from easy… and there’s still much to do, but it is quite a pleasant feeling! Finland is like the Mecca of the WRC. Here, everybody talks about rally, thinks about rally and breathes […]

Na zdrowie!

This is for days like this this I do rallies. It feels so great! I wish I could describe you the feeling of driving at 190km/h on soaked dirt roads just to take a few seconds over our opponents. It’s never easy to switch from the sinuous track of Sardinia for the super-fast roads of […]

Five in a row!

Hi, everybody! The more rallies, the more good results! We’ve just ended this race in third place and this is our fifth podium in a row! Sardinia’s roads really are characteristic: the ground is very hard and covered with a thick layer of sand, scattered with big rocks. In short, this is an especially tricky […]

The party goes on and on!

The rallies keep coming and so are the great results! It really is super motivating to see that our hard work (and Hyundai’s) is bearing fruits. Portugal… aaaah, Portugal! I’m not going to lie to you, this rally never really worked out well for us. It’s always super complicated to find the appropriate pace in […]

Impossible is nothing!

Every victory is unique: there’s the first one, the most emotional; there are the crushing ones, the lucky ones, … and then there are the victories in suspense, the ones on which you refuse to give up, the ones you know you can get even though nobody else believes it. This is one of this […]

10,000 corners… and a victory!

It. Is. Amazing! There it is, we scored our first victory of the season, after a perfect race. Rally Corsica is one of a kind… Breathtaking landscapes, abrasive tarmac, bumpy roads, corners, corners, and corners again… a race made for the new WRC 2017. It also is a real challenge for the co-drivers: a weak […]

First podium of the season!

Hi everyone! I am writing to you today with a bright smile and a sombrero on my head… the same sombrero that was offered by the organisers to the top three crews. Rally Mexico really is one of a kind. People here are incredibly enthusiastic! Tens of thousands fans partying four days long, accosting us […]

A—almost—perfect start…

Hi everyone,  Monte Carlo… a mythical name for a legendary rally. Probably the most epic, challenging, treacherous and beautiful rally, but also the cruellest of all. And the vintage of 2017 did live up to its reputation.  For all the teams, this first stage is a way to assess themselves against the other competitors, since […]
