Can Rallye World Champion Sébastien Ogier overturn the Argentine Curse this weekend? Despite the fact that he has already started six times for this rallye in the province of Córdoba, he has never yet won it; last year he managed no better than 17th place. Comments Sébastien drily: “The Argentine rallye is the only one on the calendar that Julien and I have not yet won. And this year it won’t be easy, since we have to be the first ones to head onto the course. I will certainly give it everything I’ve got to finally win this rallye for the first time. Up to now, the season has gone beautifully for Julien and me, so I am feeling optimistic.” In the current World Championship ranking, the duo heads the pack, with a lead of 35 points. Apart from that, the highly likeable Frenchman who drives for VW has an additional core of motivation in his satchel: his wife, SAT1 moderator Andrea Kaiser, is expecting their first child. They have already furnished the nursery.
On the second of May, Sébastien will greet his German fans in person in Munich, where he will be present as guest at the Grand Opening of the Richard Mille store. The Swiss creator and manufacturer of luxury watches is one of his sponsors.
