The 88th Rallye Monte-Carlo lived up to the winter classic’s reputation and proved complex on both the sporting and technical fronts due to the week’s changeable, unpredictable weather conditions.

Mads Østberg and his co-driver Torstein Eriksen got to a perfect start for their 2020 title chances with victory in the R5 manufacturer class, WRC2. Mads’ confidence behind the wheel of his PH Sport-run C3R5 helped him post six stage wins, as well as the second-best RC2 time on the Power Stage, where he took the time for a donut before the finish line to celebrate with the fans.

Mads Østberg (1st, WRC2 / 10th overall):
«We are very pleased with our performance this week, although we were unlucky on Friday when we dropped around 2m40s due to a damaged wheel rim. Our car was competitive from the start and we set some great stagetimes that led us to the WRC2 win. It was great to see an all-Citroën top five, and all the hard work put in last year means we should be able to target other victories this season.»
