After a thrilling finish to Rally Sweden, Sebastian Ogier heads to Mexico on a high note after winning the first two rounds of 2015.

On top of that, Ogier will be keen to defend his back to back wins in Mexico in 2013 and 2014 with another solid effort this week as he strives to make it three from three in his factory tuned Volkswagen Polo WRC car.

Ogier now leads the championship with 53 points closely followed by Neuville and Mikkelsen who both sit comfortably in second on 30 points apiece.

Rally Mexico is a tough race on crew, cars and drivers with teams competing high up in the Mexican mountains, robbing cars of 50HP due to heat and high altitude.
