World rally champion Sebastien Ogier continued to dominate at the season-ending Wales Rally GB as he won four of the six second-day stages.

The 29-year-old Frenchman had won all but one of Thursday's three opening stages and followed that run up with further success on Friday as he triumphed in stage four in Hafren.

He then clocked up three further stage wins after Volkswagen team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala and Dani Sordo of Citroen had won a stage apiece.

Ogier, who won his maiden World Rally Championship title in front of his home fans last month, has also been instrumental in Volkswagen sealing the manufacturers' crown and has shown no sign of letting up in the season finale.

Latvala is second - just over 20 seconds adrift of his team-mate - with Thierry Neuville third, Mads Ostberg fourth and Evgeny Novikov rounding out the top five.

But there was worse news for former Formula One driver Robert Kubica, with the Pole crashing out on stage four of his first ever World Rally event having been seventh at the end of Thursday's running.

The team of Tony Jardine and Olympic gold medal winner Amy Williams fared better and sit 27th overall after another good day for the Formula One analyst and his former skeleton competitor co-driver, who is making her World Rally debut.
