Ogier claims third Sweden win
Frenchman makes it two out of two in 2016
Sébastien Ogier secured his third Rally Sweden victory when he won the second round of the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship on Sunday.
The Frenchman led the three-day snow and ice rally from start to finish in a Volkswagen Polo to win by 29.8sec, adding to his triumphs in the Karlstad-based event in 2013 and 2015.
New Zealand’s Hayden Paddon finished second on his debut in Hyundai’s new-specification i20, with Norwegian Mads Østberg third in a Ford Fiesta RS, a further 25.8sec back.
Ogier also won the final live TV Power Stage to claim three bonus points. Andreas Mikkelsen took two points for second in a Polo R, while Kris Meeke claimed the final point in third in Citroën’s DS 3.
