VIDEO: Ogier inks M-Sport deal
Sébastien Ogier has credited M-Sport with giving him the motivation to win this year's WRC title, and there's plenty of mutual respect to see in this video of Ogier inking his 2018 contract earlier this week.
"We achieved incredible things this year," Ogier said, when he visited M-Sport's UK base on Tuesday to seal the deal and meet the 240-strong workforce.
"I felt very welcome, and that everybody really wanted me in this team. It was a good feeling and gave me motivation to do my best."
And if there was any doubt about the Frenchman's intentions for 2018, he cleared that up too.
"For sure, the competition will be very tough next year, we've seen that already in 2017. We know we have to keep working very hard to retain our title but it's definitely possible and we will go for it!" he said
