WRC - Ogier takes Mexico win

Sordo and Meeke fill podium places

11 March 2018 - 20h20, by www.wrc.com 

Sébastien Ogier won Rally Mexico for the fourth time on Sunday afternoon to regain the lead of the FIA world rally championship.

The Frenchman surged from fifth to first in intense heat on Saturday before easing through today’s final leg in mountains near León to win the dirt road encounter by 1min 13.6ec in a Ford Fiesta.

Kris Meeke, winner 12 months ago, was on course for second before tipping his Citroën C3 onto its side in today’s opening speed test. His error allowed Dani Sordo to claim second in a Hyundai i20, with Meeke a further 15.6sec back in third.

Ott Tänak won the final live TV Power Stage to claim five bonus points in a Toyota Yaris. Ogier took four points for second with Jari-Matti Latvala claiming three in another Yaris in third. Hyundai i20 duo Thierry Neuville and Andreas Mikkelsen took two and one point respectively.
