Auger is confident he hasn’t lost his connection by stepping away from a rally for four months to take part in the World Endurance Championship program with Richard Mille Racing, the last round to be held last weekend at Spa Francorsch.
“I think some drivers have proven that they can perform in many sports. Even a guy like Seb [Loeb] returned to the rally, and as we saw in Monte, he won again, so nothing is impossible, ”Ogier said.
“Of course it complicates, it’s understandable. If you’re focused on just one goal, it’s always easier to focus, that’s for sure. Nothing against it. But on the other hand, expectations may not be exactly the same.
“At WEC I know the chances of being number one there are very, very low. I’m new to events and it’s harder for me to see how close I can get to the best in this category.
“But I don’t even dream of being the best there, to be honest. In the rally, I still hope that the gap is not so big, that I still hope that I can be competitive. “
