The boss of M-Sport Malcolm Wilson still hopes for a contract extension with the four-time world champion Sebastien Ogier next season.
The Frenchman joined the team from Cumbria after the departure of Volkswagen from WRC at the end of last year, and recently hinted that he is ready to continue cooperation, but on condition of receiving a guarantee that they will continue to fight with the factory riders.
Sebastien Ogier has described the condition under which it will remain at M-Sport for the season-2018
“I analyze everything to Ogier stayed with us. We will make every effort for this, – quotes the AUTOSPORT Wilson. – Sébastien knows that I am very open with him. I showed him the plans and told about preparation for the next season.
Now there is no doubt that the team is committed to Ogier, and he’s loyal to the team, and we want to continue in the same spirit further.
I really appreciate his desire to make a decision as soon as possible”.
During the first eight stages Ogier won in Monte Carlo and Portugal and is currently ahead of nearest rival in the championship, Thierry Neuville, on 11 points.
