NEWS - Volkswagen Motorsport records historic Monte 1-2-3

Volkswagen Motorsport have had a dream start to the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship, and in doing so have found their way into the history books. Sébastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen claimed a one-two-three for the Polo R WRC at the most iconic rally in the world. This makes Volkswagen only the fifth manufacturer ever to have achieved this feat at the “Monte”, further reinforcing the intentions to build on the success of last year.

“A one-two-three at the Rally Monte Carlo is a fantastic performance from the entire Volkswagen team, and I am very proud of our crew,” said Dr. Heinz-Jakob Neußer, Volkswagen Board Member for Technical Development. “To start the season in this manner with a new car, and in such difficult conditions, far exceeds our expectations. The entire troop worked in perfect harmony. Everyone was there for each other, everyone knew exactly what he or she had to do, and Volkswagen ultimately deserved to win. This team is now deservedly up there with the other big rally manufacturers.”
