Sébastien Ogier THE FRENCH CHAMPION

A UNIQUE ROAD TO SUCCESS

"Wherever you are, whatever you’re doing, you’re the one behind the wheel. The pressure never lets up. You just have to drive through it."

Before Sébastien Ogier, there were many great World Rally Champions, but few came out of the gate as fast as he did, winning his first WRC point while still a junior.

Nor did any rise so fast to the very top of the pack: most stage wins and most points in a season, 33 podium visits, 23 rally wins, the 2013 WRC Championship, the Champion des Champions title… already a legend in rally sport, his eyes focussed on the challenges ahead, he never cracks under pressure — he thrives on it.

...LIKE TAG HEUER’S

Sébastien Ogier has one goal:towin. After a year of intense preparation working on the new WRC car, he came back to compete at the top of his game in 2013. He became World Rally Champion with 9 victories.
For his title defense Sébastien started out just as fast, winning the world’s most prestigious rally race, the Rallye Monte Carlo, at the season debut and locking down Volkswagen’s second consecutive manufacturers title by the time the cars hit Australia—quicker than anyone in 25 years.

Two races later, at the Rally de Catalunya, he secured his second driver’s title, becoming one of only for four driver’s in history to win back to back championships. Will he repeat next year? Will his streak continue? One thing is for sure: Sébastien Ogier is one of a kind and destined for true greatness, because, like TAG Heuer, he seeks perfection, never quits moving forward, and never cracks under pressure.
