A learning experience
Sebastien Ogier feels pleased with his results following last week-end's Rally Argentina, a notoriously tough event which the Citroen Junior Team driver took on for the very first time.
Ogier did well despite a broken suspension affecting his
C4 WRC during the second day of the rally, taking him out of the action. He returned on Sunday to claim seventh place, taking in points for his team and delivering on his orders to reach the finish.
"It's never fun having a few problems and having to return under SupeRally and all that, but it remains positive and it's a good experience, and that's what we have to remember," Ogier underlined.
Looking back at his trip to Argentina, the Frenchman gave himself good marks.
"I think I respected the orders that were given to me by not committing any errors and by doing a good race," he began.
"It's true that during the first stages, we sometimes fell into bad rhythm and sometimes we were even a bit too slow. Part of the learning process, I guess."
"At first I wasn't very confident and not very comfortable with the car," he admitted, "but that changed as the kilometres went by."
"At this rally I can't blame myself for any driving errors, and that's always good to take," Ogier concluded, looking forward to the next round in Sardinia.
