Finland - Sebastien Ogier took a firm grip on the world rally championship on Saturday when he swept to victory in Finland for his fifth triumph of the season.

The French Volkswagen Polo driver finished ahead of Ford Focus duo Thierry Neuville of Belgium and Norway's Mads Ostberg.

Ogier had controlled the race since the midway point on Friday and set two of the fastest times on Saturday.

"It was a super weekend and great to win here," said Ogier, who has also won this year in Sweden, Mexico, Portugal and Sardinia.
