Breaking news: Ogier wins Rally Italia

Reigning world champion Sebastien Ogier has won Rally Italia Sardegna after three punishing days of rallying on the island’s rough gravel stages.

Mads Ostberg finished second in his Citroen DS3 WRC, albeit 1m 23.1s off Ogier's rally-winning pace. Early rally leader, Jari-Matti Latvala, completed the top-three in his VW Polo R WRC. He was only 9.7s behind the Norwegian.

With bonus championship points up for grabs on the 'Cala Flumini' Power Stage, the top contenders didn’t slow. After 8.8km of hard driving, it was a VW clean sweep. Andreas Mikkelsen was fastest and took a maximum of three championship points, while Latvala took two points and Ogier took one for setting the third fastest time.
