World Champions Again! Winners In Spain! Ogier And Ingrassia Defend WRC Title With Volkswagen


A big day for Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia. A big day for Volkswagen. With their victory at the Rally Spain, the old world champions have been crowned the new world champions*. After their seventh victory of the season, the 23rd of their career, the French duo cannot be caught in the overall standings of the FIA World Rally Championship. Not even by their team-mates Jari-Matti Latvala/Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN), who with second place in Spain clinched the tenth one-two victory for Volkswagen in the WRC and staged a thrilling battle with their team-mates for the rally win. Going into the WRC finale at the Rally Great Britain, Ogier/Ingrassia have extended their lead over Latvala/Anttila to 31 points. Only 28 of those can be reduced in three weeks' time. In the “mini final”, Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene also achieved an early result with seventh place in Spain – no one can push Andreas Mikkelsen out of third place in the drivers' standings.

FIA World Rally Championship Ogier and Ingrassia win in Spain and defend WRC titles with Volkswagen

The former world champions are now also the new world champions: Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia (F/F) won Rally Spain to once again clinch the drivers’ and co-drivers’ WRC titles. Their seventh win of the season means that their teammates Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila (FIN/FIN), who finished the rally in second place, bringing Volkswagen’s tally of one-two victories to ten, can no longer catch up with the two Frenchmen in the overall rankings of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). Ogier/Ingrassia now have an unassailable lead of 31 points ahead of the final rally of the season in the UK. Third place in the rally on Spain’s Costa Daurada went to Mikko Hirvonen/Jarmo Lehtinen (Ford). The third Volkswagen duo of Andreas Mikkelsen/Ola Fløene (N/N) likewise secured their overall WRC position before the end of the season in Spain: having scored six points for finishing the rally in seventh place and also a bonus point for their third place in the power stage, the two Norwegians can no longer be bumped out of third place overall.
