Kris Meeke said that “finally, everything seems to be coming together for me” after an impressive debut for the Toyota Gazoo Racing team on Rallye Monte-Carlo.

Co-driven for the first time by Seb Marshall, Meeke finished sixth on the 2019 FIA World Rally Championship opener, completing the event in style with fastest time on the Power Stage.

“To win the Power Stage was an incredible way to finish our first rally with Toyota Gazoo Racing,” said Meeke. “We only set one fastest time this weekend but we did it when it counted. Other drivers were still fighting for their positions until the end, so to put it on the line and come away with the five points is great. We had technical issues this weekend that affected our result – fourth might have been possible – but to show our speed is really nice. The feeling with the car is really good. Finally, everything seems to be coming together for me, but we’re only one rally in, so we have to stay concentrated now and look forward to Sweden.”

Kris Meeke and Seb Marshall wear Stilo WRC DES Zero 8860 helmets.
