In testing: M-Sport

Sébastien Ogier has been testing on the iconic roads of the Col de La Fayolle in France as he prepares to begin his title defence at Rallye Monte-Carlo [25 - 28 January].

The champ joined 2018 M-Sport Ford team-mate Elfyn Evans for a three day test earlier this month, and put the squad's Ford Fiesta test car through its paces on a mix of dry and damp Asphalt.

Ogier found time to give Red Bull Air Race star Nicholas Ivanoff a passenger ride - and hinted at a seat swap in the French pilot's aerobatic plane sometime soon.

After the test, Ogier took the car - registration number: X M59ORT - to his nearby hometown of Gap where he performed a driving display at a celebration event to mark his fifth WRC title.
