WRC Poll: magical mid-season moments

The WRC season reached its midpoint in Poland - the end of a seven-rally run that started in January with Rallye Monte-Carlo.

Before the second half kicks off at Neste Rally Finland [28 - 31 July] we're asking for your help to rate our top five moments of the season so far.

Over the coming days we'll bring you our five nominees and next week you'll have the chance to vote for your favourite.

Up today is the first of our shortlisted moments, taken from the opening round.

Mid-season moment 1: Ogier's Monte trio

Sébastien Ogier kicked off the new season by achieving a childhood ambition and winning Rallye Monte-Carlo for a third consecutive time.

The Frenchman, who was born in the rally base of Gap, joined an exclusive club of drivers to have won the legendary event three times in a row. Only Sandro Munari, Walter Röhrl, Tommi Mäkinen and Sébastien Loeb have done likewise.

"This rally is the most important of the season for me and it's so emotional to win here for a third time. I've been dreaming of this since I was a kid," said Ogier.

The second nominee will be revealed here on Friday.
