Well done Kris
The late great Colin Mcrae realised the potential of Kris Meeke very early on in his career. Perhaps the Scotsman could see a little of himself in Meeke.
Like Mcrae, Meeke lets his driving do the talking and maybe Volkswagen, whose bosses recently criticised him for “taking points” from potential world-class drivers will now see that he is now in that elite class after his victory in Finland.
What’s more, he is totally capable of challenging for the drivers’ championship.
That might not be this year but if he can maintain the current form then maybe next year. Let’s hope so.
Congratulations to Kris Meeke and co-driver Paul Nagle on their victory and also to Craig Breen for his third placed result.
I’m sure John Horton, who helped run the Rally Finland media service and sadly passed away earlier this year, would have been very proud of these guys and their results. Nick Nieroda Via email
