Rallye Monte-Carlo: SKODA FABIA Rally2 evo driver Mikkelsen starts as WRC2 leader into last leg

Again, Mikkelsen was full of praise for his safety crew. Fellow Norwegians Bernt Kollevold and Cato Menkerud check each stage roughly 90 minutes before the actual start for changes compared to the pace notes, relaying them to co-driver Ola Fløene just in time. “Their information was really spot on. I have the best safety crew in the whole world,” Mikkelsen acknowledged. „We have a big lead, so for the last stages it’s quite easy – we don’t need to push, we just have to get to the end.“

In stage 10, the 20 years from Bolivia and Argentinian co-driver Marcelo Der Ohannesian even posted the second fastest time among the WRC2 competitors.
