Sport

With the incredible duel between Sébastien Loeb and Sébastien Ogier still in our eyes, we move to Sweden for an appointment not to be missed. The FIA ​​World Rally Championship is preparing for a new challenge, the first without the two transalpines who in recent years have written indelible pages of this discipline.

In Umeå the battle is assured, in fact uncertainty reigns for a special event which is in fact the only one completely on the snow on the calendar. The new Rally1s are looking for a master, a challenge to be experienced after their debut in Monte Carlo.

Leading the overall ranking, effective third since we do not consider the two Sébs, is the Finnish Kalle Rovanpera (Toyota) who together with the owner Oliver Solberg (Hyundai) are the two special observers of this weekend.

The first has shown that he is also at ease on the new Yaris, the second seeks redemption together with his team. The Korean brand has in fact struggled in the streets surrounding the Principality, errors were not lacking along with the problems. Estonian Ott Tanak and Belgian Thierry Neuville have the clear intention of making up for it in order to close the gap with their direct rivals.

Toyota is preparing to overtake the ‘Puma’ that amazed everyone with M-Sport in the Monegasque opening round. Irish Craig Breen finds himself for the first time in his career to be the top man along with confirmed Adrien Fourmaux and Gus Greensmith. The English team should also have welcomed our Lorenzo Bertelli, engaged in Milan Fashion Week.

Obviously, eyes also on Elfyn Evans who is called to battle for the final success after the sensational mistake that excluded him from the Monte Carlo Rally. The Toyota standard bearer # 33 is undoubtedly one of the big disappointments of the January challenge in which he was the favorite for the podium. For the Japanese brand we also remember the presence of Esapekka Lappi, present in place of Ogier.
