Ogier nets eighth win
Wales Rally GB
World champion Sébastien Ogier netted his eighth win of the WRC year with victory at a storm-lashed Wales Rally GB on Sunday afternoon.
The Volkswagen Polo R driver headed Kris Meeke’s DS 3 by 26.0sec in the season finale, with Andreas Mikkelsen third in another Polo R a further 10.2sec behind. The result meant Jari-Matti Latvala finished second in the drivers’ standings ahead of Mikkelsen.
Second for Meeke and seventh for Mads Østberg ensured Citroën secured the runners-up slot in the manufacturers’ championship ahead of Hyundai.
Latvala won the final live TV Power Stage to claim three bonus points. Mikkelsen took two points in second and Robert Kubica took the final point in a Ford Fiesta RS.
