This time, he wants to do the same knowing he is already the winner with the new hybrid Toyota. Ogier has many arguments in favor of being successful again in the Safari, from which he started as the first leader, by beating Loeb face to face, and, in terms of times, also the rest, in the show stage of Nairobi with which this World Cup edition of the Kenyan event has begun, the second since the championship returned to Africa a year ago.
