M-Sport say thank-you to Ogier and Ingrassia
- 28th September 2018, 11:39pm
Following the news that Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia will be moving to pastures new in 2019, the whole of M-Sport would like to thank them for the two years they dedicated to our small but passionate team – and look back with pride on all that we achieved together.
When Sébastien and Julien joined the team in 2017, they made history and helped M-Sport secure the Triple Crown with the FIA World Rally Championships for Drivers, Co-drivers and Manufacturers.
It was an achievement the whole team will remember for a long time to come.
Having secured victories in Monte-Carlo, Mexico and Corsica this year, Sébastien and Julien are also in with a strong chance of defending their titles and the entire team will continue to work their hardest to ensure this successful partnership comes to a close on another high.
“I would like to thank Sébastien and Julien for everything they have done for the team over the past two years. Their professionalism, attention to detail, determination and outright speed is something to be admired and we’re all very sorry to see them go,” Team Principal, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said.
“I am immensely proud of everything we achieved together, and their time with the team is something that I think everyone will remember for a long time to come.
“We wish them well with the next and final chapter of their careers, but there are still three events left to contest this year and the whole team will continue to give one hundred and ten percent in the defence of our championship titles."
Ogier said it has been an incredible two years.
“When we decided to join M-Sport two years ago, many considered it a risk. I considered it a challenge, and together we achieved something extraordinary. Malcolm and his team have such a passion for rallying, and I would like to thank each and every one of them for what has been an incredible two years together,” Ogier said.
“It’s now time for another new challenge, but first we will focus on bringing this special partnership to a close in the best possible way. The championship is still extremely close and we’ll keep fighting to keep our chances alive and keep pushing until the very end.”https://rallysportmag.com/ogier-to-return-to-citroen-in-2019/
