A difficult rally

Hi everybody, Sometimes you must hang on and clinch teeth… It was the case here in Finland. Of course we would have loved to battle for the victory; but to win a championship, you have to accept that you are not going to win every round and keep fighting when things get tougher. That’s precisely what […]

Victory at home!

Hi everybody, I discovered Ypres back in 1998, with its condensed, super technical and so specific route. I was opening the road for David Loix et Cédric Pirotte… and I still was an amateur regarding pace notes! Two decades later, it’s a great honor for Thierry and I to add our names to the winners’ list of Belgium’s most […]

Suspense up to the end!

Hi everybody, It’s hard to think of a more incredible race than this edition of Rally Sardegna! It’s without a doubt one of the best moments of my career, the kind of thing I was dreaming of when I was a child, watching Colin McRae on TV.  We knew this would be a tough rally… especially […]

Back in the lead!

A perfect weekend! Each victory tastes special, but this one is unique for many reasons… The first one –and not the least– is that we have many Portuguese among the team. They are the most passionate people and they work incredibly hard to make sure we can drive in optimal conditions. They gave us a […]

Viva Argentina!

Coming back to Argentina after winning here last year was something unique. I can’t think of any other country with such a passion for rallying. If you ever get the chance to come to a WRC round overseas, this is the place to go! But let’s focus on the race, shall we? From the very […]

Another podium!

Tight schedule here in Corsica, I’ll keep it short this time, I hope you’ll forgive me This really is a special rally for us. It is where Thierry and I drove our second rally together, and it is also the place of our first international victory. As soon as you land on this island, you […]

Every point matters

Where do I start? Rally Mexico is always a massive challenge for the crews… and the cars! The conditions due to the altitude that we face here are almost impossible to recreate during our test sessions in Spain, and the cars are really put under strain. If Thierry perfectly managed to limit our time loss […]

A good revenge!

A year after a pile of tyres ruined our hopes, Thierry and I won Rally Sweden after a rather incredible race. We are only the third “non-Nordic” crew to achieve this!  It’s been snowing a lot here in Sweden, from the first to the last day, making the roads even more tricky. To win here, you need […]

A proper Monte-Carlo!

New season, new hopes, new ambitions. As every year, the championship kicks off in Monaco. I’ve always loved Monte, it’s a massive challenge for the teams and quite possibly the most mythical rally in the world. Over here, the smallest mistake can cost you the win… and unfortunately this is what happened to us. We lost […]

Finish on a high note!

Hi everybody, What a feeling! Ending up the season with a victory is such a great thing… and winning here in Australia on these tracks that seem to have been created for rally cars makes it even better. We were determined to go for another good result after our podium in Wales, and the least we […]
