Sebastian Ogier won his 2nd Rally with of the season ahead of Mikko Hirvonen and Thierry Neuville.
At Day 1 he had a close battle with the two Ford drivers Mads Östberg and Thierry Neuville.
But Östberg was losing time and Ogier dominated the rally after then.
Östberg retired at the end of Day 3.
Neuville had a battle with Dani Sordo for 3rd and secured his first podium finish of his WRC career and that on a gravel rally.
Nassar Al-Attiyah was driving to a excellent 5th position, also his best position in his WRC career yet.
Ken Block showed that he can also drive competitve like the other drivers and proofed it with 7th.
I’m quite impressed by the perfomance from Ogier and VW, we all know that VW had good chances to win some rallys this year.
But i would have never expected to see VW destroying Citroen and Ford and they are way longer in the WRC and have more experience.
Ford and Citroen have to think to avoid Ogier winning every rally.
But the season has just began, i hope for more action to come.
The next Rally is at Portugal on the 14th April.
