Ogier's goal is to chase his 10th Monte victory

Sebastien Ogier wants to take his tenth victory of Rallye Monte Carlo and is being happy that he secured another contract extension with Toyota.

The eight-time WRC Champion ended his professional career at the end of 2021 and has secured a partial programme with Toyota since 2022. He became the WRC driver with the most victories in Monte Carlo, as he won this iconic event for a ninth time in 2023, and aims to repeat this success next week. Totally, he has 13 starts at Rallye Monte Carlo apart from this season's participation and it is yet to be confirmed in which rallies he will compete with the third GR Yaris Rally1 in 2024, but for sure he will skip Rally Sweden as Kalle Rovanpera has been confirmed by Toyota.

"I’m happy to be at the start of another season after all these years, and I take this opportunity with both hands", Ogier said. 

"The last couple of years have been good fun with the team and we managed to secure some good results. 

"I think we want to keep going this way as long as we can and that’s the plan for 2024, starting with Rallye Monte-Carlo of course. 

"For me this is a must-do event and there’s a lot of hopes for this first rally. 

"I think it’s the rally that you need to respect more than any other as the conditions can be so challenging, which means that nothing is guaranteed. 

"Numbers are never my main motivation, but if I could get a 10th win on this event it would be something very special".
