World Champion Sebastien Ogier Wins Wales Rally GB
World Champion Sebastien Ogier and his co-driver Julien Ingrassia dominated in North Wales as they secured their fourth successive victory at Wales Rally GB.
Ogier was recently crowned World Champion, also for a fourth time, and knew that a victory would be enough to secure the Manufacturers Title for his Volkswagen team.
While mechanical issues hampered Volkswagen teammates Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen, Ogier and Ingrassia eased to victory after duelling with rival Ott Tanak.
