Winners of the Monza Rally and champions for 2021 Sebastien Ogier / J. Ingrassia
Sebastien Ogier / J. Ingrassia (Toyota Yaris WRC) are expected to be world champions for 2021. Not only are they champions, but the French also won the last race of the Rally Monza 2021 season. Ogier fought the entire race with their teammate for the Elfyn Evans / Martin Scott (Toyota Yaris WRC) title.
With just 7.3 seconds ahead, Ogier took the win, but even if he was back in the standings, he would still be the world champion for 2021.
Ogier won his 8th title out of a total of 9 seasons in the World Rally Championship.
Toyota, on the other hand, is the winner of the title for constructors.
The last 3 sections today Ogier was only 0.5 seconds ahead of Evans, making a 7.1 second lead over Evans in the penultimate section.
In the last section of the Power Stage there was nothing left but Neuville Thierry / Wydaeghe Martijn (Hyundai i20 Couple WRC) to press the gas for a place of honor, but only managed to win the Power Stage, but remained 4th in the general. A very disappointing season for Neuville, which failed to shorten 3.9 seconds at the end of the race to 3rd place, which remained with Dani Sordo / C. Carrera (Hyundai i20 Couple WRC).
First in Rally 2 are Rossel Yohan / Renucci J. (Citroën C3 Rally2), who in the last stage overtook the Poles Kajetanowicz K. / Szczepaniak M. (Škoda Fabia Rally2 Evo) by only 1.8 seconds.
Apart from the last race of the season, this is the end of a generation of cars that will be replaced by a completely new one in less than two months at the Monte Carlo Rally 2022.
