The rookie WRC driver aiming to continue Loeb and Ogier's legacies

French drivers have dominated the World Rally Championship across the past two decades; Sebastiens Loeb and Ogier have racked up the titles in commanding fashion. With Ogier calling it a day on full-time WRC competition from next year, France will pin its long-term hopes on rookie Adrien Fourmaux, who looks to have a bright future.

The World Rally Championship has enjoyed an embarrassment of riches when it comes to French drivers over the years. In fact the sport has been largely dominated for almost two decades by two of the nation’s finest ever vintages - Sebastien Loeb and Sebastien Ogier.

Between them they have amassed 16 WRC titles, Loeb becoming the WRC’s greatest ever driver winning nine consecutive championships from 2004-2012, before he was succeeded by Ogier as top dog, winning seven world titles from 2013-2018 and 2020.
