"On the human side, it was also an exceptional adventure, with Malcolm Wilson, great boss of a family team.”Ogier said he felt in France there was a lack of recognition among the general public. "We had an exceptional time with 15 consecutive titles won by French drivers (Loeb and himself), and I sometimes feel that there is a tendency to trivialise that. "It's a shame because such French domination is rare in the world of sport.”
“The rules of the WRC are made in such a way that the 'guests' have a great advantage thanks to a late starting position. The fact that we give so many advantages to the guest pilots is really damaging.”As far as the status of the sport, he said: “The discipline must evolve. It would be necessary to compact the current format of the tests. "Three days is too long to successfully maintain public attention.” And about his future: "Engaging for a year with Citroën was too little. Two years is the minimum to do things well. This will be my last contract," he said.
