Sebastien Ogier moved closer to his fourth successive World Rally Championship title with victory at the Tour of Corsica.

The Frenchman, 32, overcame the wet conditions to win in France for the first time since 2013 by 46.4 seconds.

His Volkswagen team-mate Andreas Mikkelsen finished second, while Belgian Thierry Neuville came third.

Briton Kris Meeke won both stages on Sunday but finished 16th overall after hitting a tree on Saturday.

Ogier, who is 68 points ahead of Mikkelsen in the standings with three rounds to go, will secure the title with a win at the Rally of Catalunya, which begins on 13 October.
