With the exit of reigning champions Volkswagen , a driver reshuffle and new rules and regulations, WRC might have had the shake-up it needed. Crews are already exploring the stages in Monte Carlo - and as we type, 2016 champbastien Ogier has already proven quickest on the shakedown stage in his Fiesta - where they'll contend with some of the trickiest stage conditions of the entire championship. Below you'll find an overview of what to expect in 2017, from the new cars to their comptitive crews and details of the 13 rounds that make up the season. Image 5 of 7 Image 5 of 7 WRC 2017: The cars It's new cars all around in WRC 2017.

So what’s possible when he gets to this week’s Monte Carlo Rally? “Anything is possible,” he says. “The Monte is an absolute lottery. I think you can take it as read that nobody will be going balls to the wall in that first stage on Thursday night. Everybody will have a bit in reserve, everybody will be looking at what everybody else has got. We’ll have to wait to a little later in the season to see where everybody is at, but I’m quietly confident with what we’ve got.” Like everyone in the WRC, Meeke is disappointed at Volkswagen’s departure from the series last season. “I would love to have had a shot at them with this car,” he says. “There’s no doubt that the new VW was good; they’d been running it in testing for 18 months.” The German firm’s departure has undoubtedly opened the series up more than ever. In the eyes of some, Meeke starts this year in a stronger position than anyone else – including reigning championbastien Ogier, who has moved to M-Sport to drive a Ford Fiesta WRC .

A united, strong EU needs a constructive, effective EP," Tusk said. Tajani, 63, is a former EU commissioner who was criticised for his handling of the Volkswagen diesel emissions row . He was elected after the EPP and the main Liberal group in the parliament formed a "pro-European" alliance against rising populism. Liberal leader Guy Verhofstadt, who is the parliament's Brexit negotiator, quit the race as a result. "It is absolutely necessary. With Trump, with Putin, with many other challenges Europe faces, it is key we cooperate to reform our union," said Verhofstadt. The role of EU parliament chief has grown hugely in prominence during socialist Schulz's five years in office. But the new alliance comes after a decades-old "grand coalition" between the EPP and the socialists – under which they rotated the post of parliament chief between them – broke down.
