Sebastien Ogier has built a strong lead as he bids for a fourth world rally drivers' title after a clean sweep of victories at the Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse on Friday.

The Volkswagen Polo R driver won all four stages in Corsica and finished the first of three days of competition with a 44-second lead over Thierry Neuville's Hyundai i20, which had handling issues during the morning.

After a much-improved afternoon showing, Jari-Matti Latvala was the other man on the podium, 14sec behind Neuville, and his advantage over fourth-placed team-mate Andreas Mikkelsen was 1.3sec.

Craig Breen and Hayden Paddon completed the top six ahead of another 169.04km of bumpy mountain roads on Saturday.
