Ogier: No regrets over three shunts

Sebastien Ogier, Citroen, 2010Sebastien Ogier says he has no regrets over the three consecutive accidents that blighted the end of his 2010 campaign.

After winning his second rally of the year on Rally Japan, Ogier was very much in contention to finish second in the championship. But instead of driving for points finishes, he stated that he wasn't interested in the runners-up spot and elected to push for more wins.

While his fellow Citroen driver Sebastien Loeb ended the season in perfect fashion with three victories, Ogier garnered just nine points from a possible 75 and slumped to fourth in the standings.

Ogier said: "Now I have thought about that for a few weeks, because I had to. You have to learn from your mistakes. Now it's finished and I forgot it. I'm focused on the new season. It was a difficult few events, but it's okay, it's a new season [now]. I have no regrets about that. I tried some things."

Ogier has admitted he would have taken the points if he hadn't already signed to drive for the Citroen factory team this year.

"If I had to play for my future, for my contract for this season, for sure, I use a different strategy, but now it's done," he said.
