‘I live life in the fast lane, so timing is important.’
Undoubtedly one of the best rally drivers of his generation, Multiple world champion Sébastien Ogier owes his multiples world successes at the wheel to his endurance and sense of perfection.
Richard Mille was introduced to Sébastien Ogier by his friend Nicolas Todt. The affinities between them are the result of their shared passion and obsession with perfection.
Sébastien makes no attempt to hide his enthusiasm when he talks about Richard Mille: ‘He’s not just any creator; he has a big reputation in the car racing world. Richard Mille is also enthusiastic about the field and has strong ties to it.’ This is undoubtedly one of the reasons that made it possible for the brand to support the sportsman in his discipline.
Sébastien first drove in 2016 wearing the RM 011 Flyback Chronograph. He now wears the RM 67-02 Automatic Extra Flat with the colours of his home country, France.
‘As Rafael Nadal says, a Richard Mille watch is like a second skin! The fact that it is light gives me confidence. In my field, you’re constantly fighting against the clock to gain a few tenths or even hundredths of a second. So the reliability of the chronograph becomes the decisive factor.’
In 2022, Sébastien Ogier completes the Richard Mille Racing team line-up for his Endurance debut. Looking for a fresh challenge, the Frenchman joins another form of motorsport in which he has everything to learn, with humility.
