Another of the most complicated seasons of this 2020 that was unusual was that of World Rally Championship (WRC). The category was modified almost entirely in the face of the global coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19). The calendar went from 14 dates (2019) to 7 races, something unusual and that greatly affected the collection and the sporting aspect. The Monza Rally put an end to this year’s championship.
After seven tests to the limit, Sébastien Ogier took the championship. The Frenchman claimed his seventh World Rally Champion title. He also managed to obtain his crown with the third different brand. The first car he was champion with was Volkswagen, then got on Ford and finally with Toyota achieved the championships. This weekend in Monza, he managed to be the most regular and was able to sentence the story.
The winner of the test took advantage of the fact that his main competitor, Elfyn evans, will not be able to find the set-up of the car to fight until the end. In addition, it should be noted that Hyundai managed to be Team Champion again by the hand of Ott Tänak and from Spanish, Dani sordo.
“I am happy”
Ogier managed to overcome a deficit of more than 14 seconds, which suggested that the championship could remain in the hands of Evans. However, the Frenchman brought out the magic that he was hiding in the times of Friday and Saturday. I’m quite happy. It was a difficult weekend and this last stage was not pleasant, ”said Ogier as he got out of the car.
I feel sorry for Elfyn. We had a lot of fun fighting this season and I’m sure next year will be the same. I think this season we have done a good job with a car that has been fantastic throughout, because the (Toyota) are a pleasure to drive. Yaris»Added the seven-time WRC Champion.
