    Might be, but he can still enjoy some holidays, when other drivers are competing.

    Don't think Ogier has any interest in going to Estonia and Finland as Top 3 seeded driver. Possible he goes on till then, skips these 2 and see where he is come Acropolis and Chile.

    I don't think he has any interest in those events at all.

    Same with Loeb. Doesn't like the fast, flat-out dangerous ones. Too risky.

    Rememeber how Ogier said that the contract with Citroen is his last? Well, it wasn't.

    Remember how Ogier said that 2020 will be his final year? Well, it wasn't.

    In short: he has a habit of saying things and then not following through.

    But I wouldn't be critical of him, it's just a remark.

    It's not Seb's fault he is so good and he enjoys rallying too much to completely walk away. And if the results give him a chance to fight for a title then why shouldn't he give it a go? After all, many drivers have said that they haven't seen someone who's will to win is as high as Seb's. He's wired to be a champion.

    I was 100% sure before the season that he won't do Croatia as in '22 he seemed to pick rallies that were meaningful to him. Croatia isn't and it's dangerous as locals with their beemers want a drag race while you're driving towards a stage. So my new prediction: if succesful in Croatia he'll do Portugal as starting first isn't awful there. It is bad in Sardegna, however. Also, if Seb really wants to have a push for the title he can't miss many rallies as Estonia and Finland are out of the question. I guess that if he'd want to lose his passion for WRC he'll come to Estonia and Finland

    Edit: nvm, Ogier is not doing Portugal. https://www.rtbf.be/article/wrc-seba...tugal-11170046

    Q:
    The next event is Croatia. Itís a challenging tarmac event. Why have you selected that one?
    SO:
    I hope this time it will be a bit smoother. I think this one came about after a common discussion with the team. They have seen my form on tarmac and we decided that could be an event where I am a good asset for the team. It was not necessarily my choice to go there but I was happy to give it a go. Like I say, I have good memories and I am allowed to drive in Croatia again. Thatís good.
