Sebastien Ogier has decided to continue for another year with Toyota Gazoo Racing in 2021.
The six-time World Champion Frenhchman was initially going to finish his illustrious career this year, but due to the COVID interrupted season, he will continue on for one more year.
He and Julien Ingrassia will begin their second season in the Toyota Yaris WRC at the Monte Carlo Rallye - an event they've won seven times.
“We have had a short season with only a few rallies, but enough for me to see that I really enjoy working with the team, I enjoy driving this car,” Ogier said.
“It was not my initial plan but I think this year has been very particular for everybody on this planet, and the fact that I had to spend like most people a lot of time at home this year, I didn’t do the last season that I had expected to do and to end my career with such a strange season was not great.
“So, for sure, that was one of the reasons to change my mind about my retirement. The plan is to keep pushing in 2021 and hopefully have a better, normal season and try to push for a last title.”
He is still in with a chance at the 2020 title - he trails his teammate Elfyn Evans by 14 points.
The final round at ACI Rally Monza will decide the title.
