Sebastien Ogier celebrated his world title by winning the Rally France on Sunday while nine-time world champion Sebastien Loeb’s last race ended in a crash.
Ogier took the overall lead by winning the three morning stages before containing his rivals in the three afternoon stages. The Frenchman clinched the world title on Thursday when Thierry Neuville of Belgium failed to win the power stage.
With a cushion of 13.7 seconds after stage 17, Ogier could afford to drive less aggressively in the afternoon. Dani Sordo of Spain, Jari-Matti Latvala of Finland and Neuville each won one of the last three stages.Sebastien Loeb, Sebastien Ogier, Thierry Neuville, World Rally Championship, WRC
