Sébastien Ogier realised a childhood dream thanks to Red Bull when he got the opportunity to drive the title-winning RB7 at the Red Bull Ring in Austria last week.
The four-time FIA World Rally champion is currently engaged in a fierce fight with Belgian Thierry Neuville, the Hyundai driver’s poor start allowing Ogier to build an 11-point lead with co-driver Julien Ingrassia heading into 67th Rally Finland from July 27-30.
With the summer break allowing the WRC circuit a much needed pause, following a hectic first half of the year, Ogier travelled to Spielberg to get behind the wheel and fulfil a childhood dream of his.
"As a kid I was watching [Ayrton] Senna, he was my idol, and of course I was dreaming one day to try this kind of car.
"For a racing driver to have fun you need to be fast and a Formula One car is the fastest car you can drive, so of course every racing driver wants to feel that one day."
