Ott Tänak claimed his second consecutive FIA World Rally Championship victory in Portugal on Sunday afternoon.
The Estonian led Vodafone Rally de Portugal from Friday morning to back up last month’s victory in Chile by 15.9sec in his Toyota Yaris.
Thierry Neuville finished second in a Hyundai i20 after Kris Meeke spun his Yaris in the penultimate speed test to drop behind the Belgian, and then crashed in the final stage and retired. Third eventually went to Ogier, a further 41.2sec behind
Ogier won the live TV Wolf Power Stage to claim five bonus points. Neuville scored four in second with Tänak claiming three points in third. Teemu Suninen, driving a Ford Fiesta, and Dani Sordo, in another i20, took two and one point respectively.
