A moment that you would prefer not to experience again?
1981 in Portugal, on gravel. The car was understeering* in a long, extended right curve when the tyre pressure abruptly dropped. I plunged down a hillside, crashed through a wall and rolled over, probably about ten times. The car was written off. The co-driver and I both walked away unharmed. We were extremely lucky to do so.
What do you think of WRC champion Sébastien Ogier’s driving skills?
I can only take my hat off to him. He is a fantastic driver, very talented, but above all he’s unbelievably consistent. If I as a rally driver get thrown out during the seventh trial, it’s no good at all that I won the previous six. The point is to get close to the limits, but never to go over them. Ogier is absolutely perfect at that.
