Citroen leaves world rally championship as Ogier exits

Citroen is leaving the world rally championship with immediate effect after six-times world champion Sebastien Ogier announced his departure from the team, the French manufacturer said.Citroen Racing said it had made the decision “due to the absence of a first-class driver available for (the) 2020 season” but commercial factors were also a major consideration.The motorsport.com website said Ogier was expected to be announced as a Toyota driver on Monday. Toyota’s Estonian Ott Tanak won the driver’s title in Spain last month, ending Ogier’s six-year reign, but announced four days later that he was joining Hyundai for 2020.Hyundai secured the manufacturers’ crown when this month’s season-ending Australian race was called off due to the threat of bushfires.
