“Three months today since you left us… Hard not to think of you after this victory,” Ogier said, letting his emotion seep through his words. It’s evident that his bond with his uncle was deep and significant, influencing profoundly his sports career and his passion for rally. Ogier shared with the world a fragment of his personal history, revealing that it was beside his uncle, on the sidelines of autocross circuits, where he began to forge his passion for this sport. It’s a precious memory, a moment of sharing and connection that deeply marked his journey to success.

“This passion that still drives me so strongly today, it was on the sidelines of autocross circuits that it was forged, I was so happy to share these moments with you, uncle,” Ogier added, highlighting the importance of those shared moments that shaped his destiny as a champion. With a note of hope and affection, Ogier expressed the wish that his uncle, wherever he is now, could still be proud of the path he has taken. It’s a touching tribute, full of meaning, that goes beyond mere sporting victories, touching the deepest chords of the human soul: love, memory, and gratitude towards those who have accompanied us along the journey of life.

In this moment of joy and triumph, Sébastien Ogier reminded us that behind every great athlete, there is a personal story, made of sacrifices, shared passions, and people who have contributed to shaping their destiny. And so, while we celebrate his victory in the Rally Croatia, we also join in his heartfelt tribute to his uncle, remembering that the most significant victories are those that carry in the heart the memory of those we have loved and who are no longer with us.
