WRC Rally of Portugal Results image

Frenchman Sebastien Ogier has won his second consecutive Rally of Portugal on Sunday. Ogier, driving a Citroen DS3, clocked 4hr 10min 53.4sec over the three-day rally with 17 special stages to finish 31.8sec ahead of Loeb.

Finland’s Jari-Matti Latvala was a lonely third for Ford, with team mate and compatriot Miko Hirvonen a long way back in fourth.

Rally Portugal winner Sebastien Ogier said: “I’m very happy with a perfect weekend. I want to dedicate this victory to all the team because they prepared a perfect car and they trusted me even after the mistake in Mexico. This is the best way to come back.”

Loeb had already effectively conceded defeat after the morning stages when he decided not to attack, given his team mate’s time advantage.
The champion could, however, take consolation in three bonus points from the final 31.04km “power stage” over gravel roads in the southern Algarve region, which lifted him level with Hirvonen at the top of the standings on 58 points from three of the 13 rounds.
