The beginning of the day did not go well for Kajetan Kajetanowicz. The morning stages of the Monza Rally were held in the Alps, several dozen kilometers north of Milan. The WRC crews were greeted by cool, damp and foggy weather. – There is uncertainty as to the choice of tires – said the Lotos Rally Team driver before leaving for the first stage.

His main rival for the championship, Yohan Rossel, had reasons to be pleased. After the third stage, his advantage over the Pole was 6.6 seconds and it could seem that Kajetanowicz is in trouble. Nothing could be more wrong.

The driver from Ustroń did much better in the second part of the day, which took place at the famous Monza track. The organizers connected parts of the facility with the surrounding area, which meant that drivers had to test themselves in changing conditions. – As if we were starting a new rally – said Kajetanowicz before the afternoon loop.

In mixed conditions, partly on the track, Kajetanowicz felt like a fish in the water. He finished three stages of the podium – successively he was third, second and again second at the finish. As a result, he leveled the losses to Rossel to just 2.9 seconds. Thus, the fight for the WRC3 world title remains open.

The track stages of the Monza Rally have also brought a change in the leader of the overall WRC classification. Elfyn Evans took the lead and Sebastien Ogier fell to second place. The Frenchman cannot feel confident and has to avoid mistakes later in the event.

– It was a good start to the rally. I had good runs especially in the mountains. During the stages on the track, I had some problems and I decided not to risk chicanery. Still, it’s okay, said Stallion at the end of the day.

On Saturday, six special stages are waiting for drivers. As many as four of them will be played in the Alps and they can set the fate of the fight for the WRC and WRC3 world championships. Only at the end of the day will the crews return to Monza. The struggle begins at 7.38.
