Volkswagen has just clinched its second consecutive World Rally Championship title. The German team has dominated the sport since its entry with the Polo R WRC in 2013, where it won ten of the thirteen rounds and won by a fair margin.
This year too, Volkswagen dominated the field from start of the championship to finish, and after winning the Rally of Spain, has secured the title again, with the Wales Rally still to go.
The driver and co-driver duo of Sebastian Ogier and Julien Ingrassia have a huge lead over the second and third place teams, both driving for Volkswagen again. Matti Latvala and Miika Anttila are currently in second place with Andreas Mikkelsen and Ola Fløene sitting behind in third place. So yes, its been all VW this year.
Volkwagen has clinched 11 wins out of 12 rounds this year, losing out only in the German round to Hyundai duo of Thierry Neuville and Nicolas Gilsoul after both cars retired early.
