SEBASTIEN OGIER HAS TAKEN A SENSATIONAL VICTORY IN RALLY SWEDEN AND SECURED A MAIDEN WIN FOR VOLKSWAGEN & RSQUO;S NEW POLO R WORLD RALLY CAR ON ONLY THE MANUFACTURER & RSQUO;S SECOND EVENT.

Ogier, 29, dominated the World Rally Championship’s snow and ice round after taking the lead from his fellow Frenchman Sebastien Loeb on Friday morning.

Loeb, in a Citroen DS3, kept the pressure on his former team-mate right to the end, but eventually had to settle for the runners-up spot, 41.8sec behind Ogier and his co-driver Julien Ingrassia.

Ford Fiesta RS driver Mads Ostberg was third, the Norwegian finishing 42.7sec adrift of Loeb.
