Volkswagen's Sebastien Ogier won six out of ten rallies and only needed a single point at Rally France to wrap up the title. Ogier's jubiliation is easy to understand, “The feeling is impossible to describe. To have won the World Championship title in France is an absolute dream come true. As a little boy, I used to marvel at the cars and top drivers at the Rally Monte Carlo with my father in my home town of Gap – and now Julien and I are World Rally Champions."
Congratulations to Volkswagen for the title and also for competing like a class act. Additionally, Volkswagen is the first manufacturer to ever win the title in their inaugural season.
