The Monte Carlo Rally, the first round of the 2015 WRC in January, is done and dusted. If you've missed the action, check out the awesome on-board footage from Robert Kubica's Ford Fiesta RS WRC.


GUANAJUATO, Mexico – Current World rally champion Sebastien Ogier has made it three out of three so far in the 2015 World Rally season with a comfortable victory here on Sunday (March 8).

The French Volkswagen driver, winner of the previous rounds in Sweden and Monte Carlo, if fact scored a double hat trick: this was his third consecutive win in Mexico..

Norwegians finished second and third - Mads Ostberg was runner-up for Citroen ahead of Andreas Mikkelsen's in a Volkswagen.


Ogier dominated the Guanajuato-based rally and had an easy run after team mate Jari-Matti Latvala ended Saturday's Stage 12 on three wheels. Ogier won by 1min18.8 after collecting three bonus points in the event-ending power stage.

He’s leading the championship with 81 points to Mikkelsen's 47.

Estonian Ott Tanak, whose M-Sport Ford was submerged in a lake for 10 hours after rolling down a slope and into the water  on Friday, finished 22nd after his car was hauled out of the water and pretty much rebuilt through Friday night.
