The two Frenchmen put in the performance of their lives and celebrated their sixth win this season in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC). However, a sporting drama unfolded in the very last minute of round ten Down Under. Two of the duo’s competitors had punctures in the last 15 kilometres of the Power Stage, which prevented Ogier/Ingrassia from claiming the title – although the Volkswagen pair didn’t put a foot wrong.
