Monaco: Victory of Sébastien Ogier at the 87th Monte Carlo Rally
"The 100th victory for the brand's 100th year at the first rally of the season is a bit symbolic, but the symbols are nice, we take it!" Said Pierre Budar, Citroën Racing's director. "We're glad it's also at the Monte Carlo because it's a special rally, but we're still a little at home here (...) To get to that point with a fierce fight during three days in difficult conditions, that was not easy for the team, everyone got hooked, Seb in particular, nobody gave up, the guys did everything . They were able to support them, give them the best car possible. The fight was intense, it foreshadows what will probably be the season to come. I think it will be tense all season".
