Meeke’s charge brings big praise

Motor Sport News - - Headline News -

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.”
