Six time FIA World Rally Champion Sebastien Ogier admitted after the end of Rally Estonia that he “was left a bit frustrated” after taking third place on the event.

Toyota driver Ogier had tried hart to match the leading Hyundai duo of Ott Tanak and Craig Breen, but the Frenchman could only finish third overall despite his best efforts to catch the Irishman on Sunday morning’s Power Stage.

A reflective Ogier said on his weekend: “It’s a positive result for us. To finish on the podium is good for the championship. For sure there is a bit of frustration for us as we know that we could have done better this weekend, there was some potential that we didn’t manage to exploit.

“To win here would have been difficult but we had the ability to be much closer or at least in second place. I also would have liked to get more from the Power Stage but it was the roughest stage of the weekend and when I feel it’s too risky to go for it, I don’t dare and prefer to secure the podium. Still it’s nice to score some good points in a difficult weekend.”

Him and Breen were separated by just 4.7 seconds by the end of the rally, with Ogier finishing 15 seconds ahead of teammate Elfyn Evans.

The next round of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship, Rally Turkey, takes place next weekend.
