Toyota Gazoo Racing WRC Team’s Sebastien Ogier took a comfortable victory on the final day of Rally Italia Sardegna on Sunday leading a Toyota Gazoo Racing WRC 1-2 finish.

Thierry Neuville was third for Hyundai just ahead of Takamoto Katsuta.

Speaking following the action, Terenzio Testoni, rally activity manager with Pirelli said”

On the whole we’re very satisfied with the rally here, bearing in mind that the conditions seen in Sardinia this weekend were even rougher, drier, and more extreme than Portugal. We also had higher temperatures of more than 30 degrees centigrade and several repeated stages, which made the roads incredibly rough and pulled out several stones. Often the drivers had to tackle these repeated stages on the same tyres, as it wasn’t allowed to change them. We’ve enjoyed a fantastic collaboration with all the teams, who have begun to really understand how our tyres work in greater detail and how to manage them effectively. This has contributed greatly to the increased performance seen here, and we’re confident that this will continue over the rest of the season, even on the very roughest events like we’ve seen here.”
