Five-time WRC world champ and co-pilot Julien Ingrassia racing for Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT next year.
The French duo took their first junior world title with Citroën in 2008. 10 years and five world titles later, Ogier and Ingrassia are returning to the team with whom it all started.

“I’m very enthusiastic about tackling this new challenge with Citroën,” said Ogier. “I’m looking forward to it! I never forgot that they are the team who gave me the opportunity to access the World Championships in the first place.

“Several components came into play: I thought it would be nice to be with people I worked quite well with a few years ago, I’m also excited to try and be world champion with a third different constructor. It’s not going to be easy, but I believe the car has potential and I trust the Satory people.”

Ogier and Ingrassia are still racing for M-Sport until the end of the season. They will be reunited with Citroën for the first 2019 stop in Monte-Carlo (January 22-27).
