The 2016 World Rally Championship begins with the most suggestive and spectacular race, the Rally at Montecarlo, and the result for our brand doesn’t change. The World Champion Sebastian Ogier, together with his navigator Ingrassia, won for the third time in a row, confirming that he is the driver to be defeated.
Sébastien Ogier, Volkswagen Polo R WRC #1:
“Winning here in Monte Carlo is such an emotional moment for me! It is just an indescribable feeling to win this iconic rally for the third time. The conditions were so tricky. It was so icy and slippery. I am really happy with this success. I would like to thank the entire team, which did a fantastic job this weekend. My ice spies were awesome. Jean Joseph Simon was doing the job for me for the first time here at the ‘Monte’. It was really tough for them to provide us with accurate predictions regarding the state of the roads. The Polo ran superbly. Then there were the many, many fans cheering on Julien and me – it was just a perfect weekend!”
