Rallying: Ogier rules Rally of Portugal again

Sebastien Ogier beat Citroen team mate and fellow Frenchman Sebastien Loeb to win the Rally of Portugal for the second year in a row yesterday and make amends for a costly crash in Mexico. Seven-times champion Loeb finished second, 31.8 seconds behind, in a repeat of last year's result. Finland's Jari-Matti Latvala was a lonely third for Ford, with team-mate Miko Hirvonen a long way back in fourth. The result was the Citroen team's first one-two finish of the season, making up for the one that got away in Mexico this month, when Ogier crashed out on the final day after leading overnight. "They [the team] showed trust in me since the start of the season and following my mistake in Mexico," Ogier said. "It is the best way to come back. It is a long way to go in the championship but I'm in a better position."
