The 16-stage event saw a complete range of weather and road conditions over the four-day schedule. For Nikolay and Yaroslav, this was the Monte Carlo in their career so the crew preferred to stick to a safe approach as they were carefully adjusting to rapidly changing conditions and exploring their new car.

Nikolay Gryazin
Driver
"I am pleased to finish our first rally with Hyundai Motorsport, especially considering this was our first time in Monte Carlo with the Hyundai i20 R5. It was not an easy event with lots of muddy conditions, as well as ice, snowm and slush. While it was tricky, we had a valuable experience getting to know the car.

We didn't push too much, as our objective was to finish the rally and to take some points away, which we achieved. I would like to extend my thanks to RedGrey Team, to Hyundai Motorsport, and to the gravel crew for their help and guidance. We also appreciate the support from the Russian fans, many of whom follow on WRC Plus. We will try to improve at the next event."
