The version 2.0 of the threat of Sébastien Ogier


Leaving aside the ‘silly season’, rare is the championship of the first order that is not a rumor or a recurring theme. Without a doubt, in the WRC goes through the order of output, rules which many regarded as the standard ‘anti-Ogier’ and that is that the position of output in the first two stages of each rally is determined by the order in the general classification. This condition causes Sebastien Ogier as the leader of the WRC have to open track what hurt him since the riders that come out for behind him are the legs ‘sweeps’ and more clean.

In this aspect, Sébatien Ogier already threatened to leave the WRC when he met the rules of the order of output for 2015. The French could not suspect that the regulation is hardening even more in 2016. While the last season the pilots reenganchaban by ‘Rally2’ after dropping in Friday’s session stood out in front of the leaders, this year the procedure is not repeated which means that Sébastien Ogier open track so relentless during the first and second stage of each rally. That has caused, among other things, that Sébastien Ogier does not have any victory in 2016 on a rally of land.


in View of the situation, that the evolution of the Polo R WRC in 2017 dissipates the superiority of Volkswagen and that each win pays are very expensive, Ogier seems to be willing to leave the WRC if for next year there are no positive changes in this standard. Really the French have not opened the mouth, because you are complaining repeatedly each time you have a micro ahead in every rally, but on this occasion his messenger has been Jost Capito, Head of Volkswagen Motorsport. In the end, the pattern of the signature plays the tricks for sweeping up to the house, never better said.

In this line, Jost Capito has explained: I Think that Ogier could retire. Ask him, but I don’t and I think you could check out. And the best thing is not so bad for some…” in what has undoubtedly been a clear message to Jarmo Mahonen, that even hinted at the possibility of harden the conditions of the order of output and extend it to the three stages of each rally. Meanwhile, Sébastien Ogier enjoys a 51-point advantage on the way to their fourth title, although that seems to give the same in this particular ‘order of output’ of complaints.
