This week's Rally Mexico marks the 100th WRC start for three-time world champion Sebastien Ogier.

The Frenchman debuted for Citroen at the same event eight year's ago and has gone on to establish a win percentage record bettered only by countryman and WRC legend Sebastien Loeb.

Ogier leads this year's standings with wins at the first two events in Monte Carlo and Sweden.

The event also marks Kiwi Hayden Paddon's 50th career WRC start.

Paddon finished runner-up to Ogier in the last event in Sweden.
