Road Book

Playing with the limits.

You can't win a World Championship by keeping a safety margin. To reach that goal, you have to take risks all the time, go flat out, play with the limits. This edition of Wales Rally GB was no exception. We were driving 100% from the very first stage despite our road position. Conditions were especially [...]

We win together. We lose together.

Rally Turkey was an unknown territory for everyone. How will the car behave on that super rough surface? How much time will we lose because of our first position on the road? Very quickly though, we knew that we would be playing in the big league. Stage after stage, we got closer and closer to […]

Avoiding the traps

Before anything, let me start this roadbook with something really heartwarming. This week-end more than ever, it felt like we were ‘playing home’. The stages were literally covered in black, yellow and red. Thank you for showing up in such high numbers. I’ll never tell you enough how much your support means to us! But let’s […]

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 […]
