The Brazilian player went for a ride with two-time (2013, 2014) World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier in his 315bhp Volkswagen Polo R WRC along the twisty roads of Montserrat mountain. “Left, right, no… right”, said Neymar – trying to get to grips with the pacenotes as Ogier sped through the hairpin corners and narrow straight. After just a few hundred metres the footballer had a good idea of just what it takes to be a good co-driver.
Even though he may need to familiarize himself with some of the routines and technical terms of the rally sport, the Brazilian footballer was relaxed on the stage. This was mainly because Ogier knows the roads in the north-eastern region of Catalunya like the back of his hand having won here twice in the World Rally Championship.
