Sebastien Ogier has clinched his sixth Rally Mexico title amid a shortened event schedule due to the coronavirus outbreak.

After snatching the lead during the speed test on Friday, the Frenchman powered his Toyota Yaris to a dominant 27.8 second-victory on Saturday.

As many of his competitors struggled to stay on the road in the hot conditions, Ogier put together a seamless run to claim his first Mexico triumph for the Toyota Gazoo Racing team.

Runner-up Ott Tanak was left to rue a minor incident during the speed test that caused damage to the rear suspension of his Hyundai i20.

Teemu Suninen of Finland finished 10.1 seconds further back to round out the podium for the event which saw the final three stages on Sunday cancelled.
