Friday when he suffered a
puncture on his
Volkswagen, was second.

and enjoyed a 50-second
margin of victory on
Saturday.

complicated stages, but
there was a great
atmosphere and it was
great to feel that all

ended Ogier’s run of three
successive wins.

lined the final stage on
Saturday to witness the
Frenchman’s last
appearance in the country.
Ogier had dominated the

unravelled on Friday with a
puncture as well as losing
time by going off road.
“It’s a good result for us,”

championship.
“We had a lot of problems
this weekend but we’re
happy to be at the end.
We’re still in a learning
year and at the moment,
after five events, it’s going
well.”
