January. It’s like a year instead of a month, isn’t it? Yes, we’re a bit closer to Melbourne but it’s not close enough.
Aside from Daniel and Max having a bit of fun around the factory, we're still two months away from F1 shenanigans. Need a remedy? Here's one in the shape of stuff you can check out to get revved up in the meantime.
WRC 2018 – Rallye Monte-Carlo. Jan 25th – 28th
If you're missing Dakar, then worry not – WRC is back! Hot on the heels of the legendary rally and with some drivers barely catching a breath in-between wheel-hopping, the World Rally Championship returns to Monte-Carlo this weekend to kick off the season in style.
Our Red Bull family are taking part, including Sebastien Ogier, Elfyn Evans, Teemu Suninen, Sebastien Loeb, Thiery Neuville, Andreas Mikklesen and Dani Sordo. The action begins on Thursday in Casino Square, followed by two night stages and plenty more gruelling stages through France, before turning tail back to Monaco and closing with a finale via the Alpes-Maritimes and Col de Turini. If you've never seen rally before, this is a great time to start – you'll be hooked!
