Meeke’s charge brings big praise
Beyond the compliments of Sebastien Ogier, Kris Meeke’s efforts on last week’s Monte Carlo Rally drew universal praise from rival team principals.
M-sport’s Malcolm Wilson said he was impressed with the consistency the Northern Irishman had shown.
“This has to be Kris’s best drive ever,” said Wilson. “He’s kept the pressure on Seb all the time and he’s never looked ragged or looked like making a mistake. I must admit, I’ve been very impressed with the speed and the consistency.”
Hyundai’s Michel Nandan echoed those sentiments, adding: “Kris has driven some very, very good stages on this rally. Incredible, I would say. Incredible the times he was performing because the roads were really tricky and whether he was on the Tarmac or on the ice, he was always there. It’s good that he comes to Sweden: we look forward to this one now.”
