The 2021 FIA World Rally Championship season gets underway this weekend with Rallye Monte Carlo. Toyota Gazoo Racing’s Sebastien Ogier goes into the defending champion and looking ahead to the 2021 season, Ogier who is aiming for his eighth championship this year commented saying:
Everybody knows that Rallye Monte-Carlo is the rally that I want to win the most. But it’s a rally that you have to face with a lot of humility because it’s always challenging with the conditions and you have to be really clever to win it.
Pirelli enter the FIA World Rally Championship a sole tyre supplier and speaking about the new tyre, Ogier commented saying:
We will need to adapt to the new tyres, especially on Monte-Carlo when we have a bigger package available than any other event. But I’m looking forward to it because for me it’s an interesting aspect of rallying: To try and make the best tyre strategy and use them as best as you can.
