In January, the two men honored the Monte Carlo Rally with their attendance, with an unforgettable duel won by Sebastien Loeb. Leading the attack on the final day, Sebastien Ogier had seen victory eluding him with a hole in the penultimate stage. With his new assistant Isabelle Galmich, the Alsatians presented themselves with an 80th victory in the World Rally Championship and an eighth in Monte Carlo, equaling the record of success in the principality held by its rival.
