SS20-21: Ogier takes Mexico hat-trick

Sébastien Ogier secured a hat-trick of victories at Rally Guanajuato Mexico on Sunday when he eased through the final leg to win by 1min 18.8sec.

The winner in 2013 and 2014 took the lead on Thursday night’s second stage in his Volkswagen Polo R and was never again headed en route to his third success of the FIA World Rally Championship season.

Mads Østberg outgunned Andreas Mikkelsen in an all-Norwegian battle for second. His DS 3 finished 6.3sec ahead of Mikkelsen’s Volkswagen Polo R after almost 400km of action in the mountains near León.

A blistering drive through the final live TV Power Stage earned Ogier the maximum three bonus points. Mikkelsen claimed two with Thierry Neuville taking the final point in a Hyundai i20 in third.
