March 10 (Reuters) - France's Sebastien Ogier clinched victory in the Rally of Mexico on Sunday to extend his lead at the top of the world championship standings.

Volkswagen driver Ogier put an early-morning technical issue behind him to complete a resounding win by more than three minutes from Finland's Mikko Hirvonen.

The Frenchman spent 20 minutes fixing a sensor after the morning's opening Guanajuatito stage.
