France's Sebastien Ogier extended his lead at the top of the world championship standings with success in the Rally of Portugal on Sunday.

The Volkswagen driver, at the head of the standings since Friday's first day, beat Finnish Citroen DS3 rival Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala (VW Polo).

This was 29-year-old Ogier's third consecutive success of the season after Sweden and Mexico and his third in Portugal after wins here with Citroen in 2010 and 2011.
