Video: Toyota testing

With only 27 days to go until the 2019 season blasts into life, the WRC teams have been busy putting their cars and drivers through their paces on test roads across Europe.

Thanks to the magic of spectator-cam, we can keep track of the progress they've been making.

Today, we throw the spotlight on manufacturers' champions, Toyota Gazoo Racing, as the team tests its Yaris WRC ahead of Rallye Monte-Carlo (24-27 January) and Rally Sweden (14-17 February).

Ott Tänak, Jari-Matti Latvala and new boy Kris Meeke all took the wheel for some vital pre-Monte asphalt mileage in the south of France.

Latvala also kicked off the team's preparations for Rally Sweden when he climbed aboard the Yaris to complete a test programme on Finland's snow-covered roads.
