Ogier can celebrate the fifth World Championship title after the British Rally

Ogier has 198 points and the second Tänak, his teammate in Ford, lags behind him by 37 points. Neuville is another point back. If they want to stay in the title, the French driver has to beat seven or eight points respectively.

“In the past rally we made a big step towards winning the championship,” said Ogier, who can emulate the countryman with the fifth triumph. Sébastien Loeba. Two weeks ago in Spain he finished second when he concentrated on completing the competition after Neuvilla’s retirement.

“We have been on the way to a series of titles before, but Thierry’s mistake has changed completely and we have made a head start even higher, “said a thirty-three-year-old rider who also has a chance to join the history of the British Rally.At the same time, he said that he can not think about the possible celebrations. “We need to concentrate on the rally and perform as best we can. One of the most demanding competitions is waiting for us, “Ogier said. While Tänak is likely to be in the position of team-mate Ogier, Neuville will not give up a chance. Even though he realizes he is not expecting a simple task. “Rally issues are one. In previous years, we have done many steps together in the back and forth, but that’s the way it is. We win and we lose together. We have to look ahead, fight back and try to end the year with some nice results, “Neuville said. Ogier, Tänak and Brit Elfyn Evans will also be in the UK to be the champion of the Constructors’ Cup, where the situation is clearer than between riders.M-Sport has a 83-point lead for the second factory of Hyundai, and for the first title since 2007, Ford will have four points.
