The former head of Volkswagen’s Jost Capito also sure that if the German manufacturer has remained in the WRC for the season 2017, its dominance in the world Cup must be continued.
VW won by Sebastien Ogier four League titles in a row from 2013 to 2016. During this period of time Ogier has won rally 43 of the 52 possible.
“At the start of the season at Volkswagen would be a huge advantage over the others, because the team before the others started to work on the car under the new regulations-2017, – said kapito in an interview AUTOSPORT.com. – Last year we barely tested the car in 2016 – it was new, and its completion was over at the end of 2015. Since we put all power to the vehicle-2017.
When former pilots, Volkswagen tested the Polo 2017, complaining about the behavior of machines, where they are now, this is the best indicator that a VW was better. Manufacturers are trying to do their work as efficiently. We paid for victory.
Under the new regulations we could be even stronger. We were sad to stop working on a project in which we have invested much effort; now we would be reaping the fruits of our hard work. We all wanted to see how good is the car on the track”.
I agree with Jost and Andreas Mikkelsen.
“Polo 2017 we are very, very impressed,’ said Andreas. – If you look at the standings now, Ogier is in the lead, [Jari-Matti] Latvala also close. I think we too would be at the top.
So I understand, what tends Yost. It is a pity that the dream does not come true”.
