You’d think World Rally Championship drivers would take it easy at a pre-event shakedown, but Mads Ostberg was definitely pushing to the max in this awesome onboard footage.

Rally Sweden is now underway and is typically one of the toughest events on the WRC calendar, thanks to its icy and snowy conditions.

So, you might expect WRC drivers to take shakedowns a bit easy and not push too hard, just to get their bearings – especially on the icy roads of Rally Sweden.

But, actually, rally drivers are a bit mad, so the complete opposite happens, as this awesome onboard footage from Ostberg’s privately-run Ford Fiesta RS WRC shows.

It was a good start to the weekend for Ostberg, who skipped Rallye Monte Carlo, as he topped the shakedown. Sit back, relax and enjoy this wondeful onboard from shakedown.
