10:39 am on 11 March 2013

The French driver Sebastien Ogier has won the Rally of Mexico to extend his lead at the top of the world championship standings.

The Volkswagen driver put an early-morning technical issue behind him to complete a resounding win by more than three minutes from Finland's Mikko Hirvonen in a Citroen.

The Frenchman spent 20 minutes fixing a sensor after the morning's opening Guanajuatito stage.

Belgium's Thierry Neuville finished third in a Ford.
