The WRC Monaco 2021 will still start, despite all the rumors of cancellation, even the Formula 1 Monaco Grand Prix. Although, F1 race day will be later, we will focus on this rally race weekend. Probably one of the most intense and here is why!

Three reasons to focus on WRC Monaco 2021
1. S. Ogger and his last maximum attack
S. Ogier is the rally genius, especially when it comes to challenges like the Monte Carlo Rally. No matter that the last winner of the WRC Monaco was Thierry Neuville, this year will be special for the seven-time World Rally Champion, because Sebastien is certain and has made it clear to us that the 2020 WRC season will be the last in his racing career.
Not long ago, S. Ogier had an accident at the tests in Monte Carlo, his crushed Yaris looked very bad. Fornuatley, S. Ogier and his co-driver J. Ingrassia got no injuries and both are healthy and ready for WRC Monaco 2021 start.
Latvala TGR Team Principal
2. Jari- Matti Latvala is back, but in the other role.
Jari Matti Latvala also knows what Rally Monte Carlo is, but the WRC Monaco 2021 will be his first rally as Team Principal of Toyota Gazoo Racing. He’s really nervous, but his fans are doing it more, while TGR fans are asking again: “Can he manage very well in his new role?” We’ll know the answer soon.
This very loud message looked like a winter joke at the first publication, but finally “why not?” One wishes Jari-Matti Latvala would feel comfortable as Toyota Gazoo Team Principal.
Pirelli coming back as Head of rally racing Terenzio Testoni promised: “The next time you see our Pirelli tyres on a World Rally Championship event will be next year’s Monte-Carlo Rally, when we begin our tenure as sole supplier.
“In creating these tyres, we’ve used the lessons learned in Formula 1, as well as our previous experience in rallying, other motorsport and ultra-high performance tyres for the road.” Were these lessons from Formula 1 racing succeeded or not, that what we will check on WRC Monaco 2021.
