    Wrc2 2018

    I would say the cars and suspensions are just progressing faster than tyres, which in turn become the weakest link on the pace the drivers are able to keep on the rough roads.

    Also, he was able to keep it together leading for the whole rally, the pressure of the previous year champion breathing down his neck. The Pirellis sure helped but still very impressive.

    Well at least a factory team can spread their drivers along the season but they can't know where their rivals are going to enter in. Maybe that's why Camilli and Tidemand's programs are not announced?

    Not even much better if you count in Rovanperä (+5:15.3) and Burri (+13:28.9). Maybe too many WRC2 guys played it safe and decided to skip Monte. No one knows what the others are going to do before...

    It's also worth noting that "full season" is 6-7 rallies.

    Camilli most likely doing a lot of WRC2.
