THIS week, Chronicle Sport gives readers a unique insight to what life is like working alongside a multiple champion from the FIA World Rally Championship.
Ronan McCrory speaks in-depth about his final season with M-Sport - and the contribution he made in helping Sebastien Ogier secure a fifth drivers' title.
McCrory ended his three-year involvement with the English squad in dream fashion as it also lifted the manufacturers' title for the first time since 2007.
He was assigned to work on Ogier's car for the 2017 campaign and admitted it was a mix of nervousness and excitement in the build-up to the opening round, which the Frenchman went on to win.
“That result gave everyone in the team a renewed sense of belief as there was a lot of tension in the camp before Monte Carlo. It lifted everyone and made them determined to give him the best car. It made us realise he could win us the title," revealed McCrory.
