Closest ever World Rally result
Citroën's Sébastien Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia clinched victory on Rally Jordan by the smallest margin on record.

Just two-tenths of a second separated Ogier from his nearest rival, Ford's Jari-Matti Latvala, while Ogier's team-mate Sebastian Loeb finished third just 27.7 seconds adrift.
The 0.2 second gap between first and second place is the smallest ever recorded in the World Rally Championship and came after an action-packed final day on the desert stages around Jordan. The three drivers, along with another Citroën of Petter Solberg, started the day with all to drive for.
In the end, and with Solberg crashing out later in the day, the battle came down to Ogier and Latvala who took the lead with only one stage remaining. The final "Power Stage" was hard fought but Ogier set a blistering time that was just enough to clinch victory by a fraction of a second.
Loeb's third place finish puts him in overall lead of the World Rally Drivers' Championship, with Citroën and Ford currently tied for the Manufacturers' title.
