A good premiere. From Pirelli’s point of view, this is how one could summarise the debut of the 2023 WRC season on gravel, characterised by an opposing choice of tyres between the first passages in the morning, with slippery surfaces, and the second, with rough tracks, in the afternoon. The result was an almost symmetrical alternation of soft and hard tyres in the two phases of the day, which united all the teams. In Sunday’s practice, the drivers made a mixed choice between prime and option, essentially replicating the double regime of the other days, with the softs (of which none were new) tackling the poor grip terrain of the first pass and the hards destined for the rough surfaces of the second passes.
The elements emerging from the race weekend are:

In RC2, whose teams largely replicated the strategies of the top category, Gus Greensmith won, ahead of Emil Lindholm and Olivier Solberg.
