The 2018 Tour de Corse is in the books and Sebastien Ogier wins his home event.



Sun 13:30 - SS12: Devine & Bergkvist


Devine is through now, an 11m30.2s for him to finish his Tour de Corse in fourth overall. Bergkvist secures third with a time of 11m21.7s



Sun 13:27 - SS12: Franceschi & Folb

Franceschi comes through in a time of 11m20.6s, Folb comes through exactly 4sec slower. Franceschi wins his home event!



Sun 13:24 - SS12 JWRC


The JWRC cars are closing in on the end of the rally - our lead pair of Franceschi and Folb are through the final split and the former is 2.2sec faster.





Sun 13:17 - SS12: Ogier

He now finishes with a time of 9m44.6s - he finishes with the same time as Meeke and is 3.4sec slower than Esapekka Lappi. He climbs onto the roof of the car alongside Julien Ingrassia! "It has been a good weekend, I am very pleased with the performance we had on Friday and it is very good news that the car has progressed - it was faster than last year."



Sun 13:12 - SS12: Ogier

Ogier is on a stormer of a time, he passes the second split just 0.8sec slower than Lappi!



Sun 13:11 - SS12: Tanak

Ott Tanak is through to stage end now, 9m49.7s for him - 8.5sec slower than team-mate Lappi. "To be honest I can't complain too much. I know for a long time that Corsica is one of my weakest events, I never could push the maximum I was just consistent all the time. A good weekend overall."




Sun 13:07 - SS12: Neuville

He finishes in a time of 10m07.8s - 26.6sec slower than Lappi. His Hyundai doesn't sound too healthy. He doesn't say a thing to our end of stage reporter Molly Pettit - he just drives off!



Sun 13:02 - SS12: Neuville

Neuville is slow through the final split - just 1.8sec faster than Kopecky and 18sec slower than Lappi.




Sun 13:01 - SS12:

Sordo is the next to come through in his Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC - 9m51.0s for him - 0.7sec quicker than Evans but 9.8sec slower than Lappi. "We are disappointed because we didn't have the pace. At the end it wasn't too bad, we need to work a little bit more for the next asphalt rally."




Sun 12:56 - SS12: Evans

Evans completes the rally alongside Phil Mills in a time of 9m51.7s - 10.5sec behind Lappi. "I think we knew it wasn't going to be completely plain sailing all the way. Phil's been incredible, this is one of the hardest rallies to do notes on. I can't thank him enough."



Sun 12:52 - SS12: Mikkelsen

9m53.0 for him, 11.8sec off Lappi. Let's see what his verdict is on Corsica: "We got a branch in the middle of the road on the Power Stage. Disappointing weekend all round, we just didn't have the feeling." Mikkelsen encountered a tree branch blown on to the stage by the strong winds.



Sun 12:47 - SS12: Mikkelsen

Mikkelsen through the final split now, he's the slowest of everyone so far - 6m24.0s. Six seconds slower than Lappi.



Sun 12:47 - SS12: Lappi

He finishes in a time of 9m41.2s - easily the fastest time so far - 2.2sec faster than Loeb. "Maybe a few days after I'll feel happy. I had a really positive day yesterday, we found a decent set-up. Today was good as well until I made a small mistake which broke the wheel and I had to change the tyre." Lappi is taking the silver-linings from Corsica.




Sun 12:43 - SS12: Lappi

Lappi is through the second split now in a time of 6m18.0s - 0.3sec faster than Kris Meeke at that point.



Sun 12:42 - SS12: Meeke

Kris Meeke completes his rally now. The Citroen driver finishes with a 9m44.6s - 1.2sec slower than team-mate Loeb. "I went flat out, Sebastien has probably faster throughout the rally in Corsica for the last 15 years. So to be a few tenths behind isn't bad."



Sun 12:36 - SS12: Loeb

Loeb completes the Power Stage in a time of 9.43.4s - 29.8sec faster than Kopecky. "I know I was in a good rhythm, I am disappointed about the mistake but I am just forgetting about that and just enjoying the drive."



Sun 12:34 - SS12: Loeb

The first of the WRC cars will be Sebastien Loeb, we've not had any splits through for him yet though.



Sun 12:33 - SS12: Kopecky

Kopecky is through now and he's come through fastest of anyone so far - a 10m13.2s - 3.7sec faster than Andolfi. "We are finally happy, the car was working perfectly."



Sun 12:32 - SS12: Bonato

Yoann Bonato comes through in 10m28.9s - 12sec down on Andolfi. "Thanks to all the team, we are very happy with the result - it is fantastic for us. For all the team, this was perfect."



Sun 12:29 - SS12: Andolfi

"I am enjoying the stages." Cracking run for Andolfi throughout the rally. Andolfi completes the stage in 10m16.9s




Sun 12:28 - SS12: Bonato

Bonato is through slowest again, 6m49.0s at the second split - 8.7sec slower than Andolfi




Sun 12:27 - SS12: Kopecky

WRC 2 leader Kopecky passes the first split, a 3m46.1s for him - 0.8sec faster.



Sun 12:25 - SS12: Andolfi

Andolfi is then through the second split in a time of 6m40.3s






Sun 11:53 - SS12 guide


Power Stage: Pénitencier de Coti-Chiavari, 16.25km. Sunday’s live TV Power Stage is new for 2018. It starts near Portigliolio and climbs on a wide, fast road to a spectacular hairpin at Acqua-Doria.


Narrower and bumpier lanes lead through Coti-Chiavari, before a change of direction towards the sea on a twisty downhill section. Drivers negotiate five hairpins before finishing near the prison in Chiavari forest.
