Ogier wins in Germany
Sébastien Ogier won ADAC Rallye Deutschland on Sunday afternoon to move within touching distance of a third consecutive FIA World Rally Championship title.
Ogier took his second German victory in a Volkswagen Polo R, beating team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala by 23.0sec after three days of asphalt action on military roads and in the Mosel vineyards near Trier.
Andreas Mikkelsen finished third, a further 1min 33.6sec back, to secure a 1-2-3 for the German manufacturer at its home round and complete a full set of victories in the WRC calendar since it entered in 2013.
Latvala won the final live TV Power Stage to claim three bonus points. Kris Meeke took two points in second in Citroën’s DS 3 and Dani Sordo secured one in a Hyundai i20.
