Manufacturers’ World Champion, world championship titles in the drivers' and co-drivers' standings, and a new record for number of wins in the FIA World Rally Championship. The 2014 season was a new milestone in the history of the Volkswagen brand.

Reason enough to celebrate successfully defending the titles and the countless sporting highlights with a grand end of season gala. More than 500 guests made the trip to Wolfsburg (D) to celebrate with the world champions at the weekend, including Dr. Martin Winterkorn, Chairman of the Board of Management of Volkswagen AG, and Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neußer, Volkswagen board member for the Development division.

“We look back on an incredibly successful year and can be proud of what we have achieved,” said Volkswagen Motorsport director Jost Capito. “Twelve wins in one season; that was the icing on the cake in an extremely successful year.” Two-time World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier (F) was also delighted with the events of the season.

“It was another fantastic year for my co-driver Julien Ingrassia and me. We're already looking forward to next season. But first I'd like to thank my team at Volkswagen Motorsport and all the fans, without whom this superb success wouldn't have been possible.”

The 2015 season of the FIA World Rally Championship kicks off with the Rally Monte Carlo from 22 to 25 January 2015.
