Ogier tested with Toyota ahead of WRC Catalunya Rally 2021
Seven times World Rally Champion Seb Ogier wants to clinch his eight title on the next round of WRC at Catalunya. There are some possible scenarios but he has to finish in front of Elfyn Evans and some small margin has to be between them because Evans shouldn't win the Power Stage on Sunday and in that case Ogier could easily win another championship this weekend.
There was a hard battle between this two Toyota drivers at the end of the last season when Elfyn Evans was leading on the last round in Monza but then he retired and Ogier clinched another title.
This time Ogier s leading by 24 points and we all know how strong mentally he is but you know never know in motorsport. You are the winner only after you pass the finish line. And then you can't be 100% sure because there could be an appeal and you can lose the win on the green table if anything on your car is not by the rules written in the FIA homologation book.
I predict a strong fight and we all know that Evans will go 100% for the win but in that way, there could be some mistakes possible because he just won in Finland with the balls to the wall approach. But OK, surface and weather this time were lust like in his home soil in Waned - dirty and muddy and that's where Evans is super fast driver.
On the videos from the Ogier's test we can notice that there wasn't Julien Ingrassia, his regular co-driver who announced split at the end of this season. It's OK because Ingrassia doesn't come on the most of the tests. Test job is for hos replacement Benjamin Veillas who will become his real replacement next season.
I can only say one thing - let the best win this weekend - as always...
