How Ogier emerged from Loeb's shadow to form his own WRC legend

OPINION: Adding an eighth WRC title to his name, Sebastien Ogier has bowed out from full-time rallying in style. Having been compared throughout his career with nine-time champion Sebastien Loeb, Ogier has convincingly demonstrated that he can stand on his own as one of the greatest rally drivers in history

Sebastien Ogier has spent much of his career living with constant comparisons to namesake and former Citroen teammate Sebastien Loeb, statistically the World Rally Championship's best-ever driver. Such is human nature to debate who is the all-time great in any given sport.

However, by securing an eighth world title in style, winning his final full-time WRC outing at Rally Monza, Ogier staked his claim to perhaps be remembered as the greatest ever.
