Yeah, it should be a close finish. I really think Tanak deserves to be where Neuville is in the points, but I hope we get a good fight between Ogier and Neuville at the last round.

Very torn about who I want to win. I'd like to see someone other than Ogier take the title but, of the two, I think that Ogier is the more deserving driver.

Tanak deserves it the most, but Iíd love to see Neuville take it. Still if Ogier wins, at least he had to work hard for it

Tanak just lost the lead after going off track, Latvala is in front now by 5s and will probably give the lead back to Tanak again. Meanwhile, Paddon is getting closer.

It's been another dramatic event - going into the final day it's still all to play for. As you say Latvala will probably slow to allow Tanak to jump him but that probably won't be enough for him to take the title. Neuville had more bad luck with the tyre off the rim - so it's still looking like Ogiers title to lose.

Neuville is done and Tanak stopped on stage! So much drama! Ogier doesn't even have to finish the rally anymore. Latvala leads, and I hope he gets the win.
All cars seems to have been taking a serious beating with bodywork pieces being thrown left and right.

Ogier took his 6th WRC title, this time with "just" four wins and six podiums.


Does anyone still question he's a legend?

This may be Ogiers most impressive title - the challenge this year was very strong. The Fiesta was arguably only the 3rd best car (behind the Toyota and Hyundai) so to take the title is impressive. Toyota probably deserved the manufacturers title this year - the Yaris has been the quickest car although it's still a bit fragile. I do feel a bit sorry for Neuville and Hyundai though - they've come up just short again.

If next season is as good as this one I'll be happy!

As much as I would like to have seen a different name winning the Championship I personally think the right driver won. It's been another superbly measured drive from Ogier this season, especially as I don't think the Fiesta is the best car. Seb knew when to push and when to hold back.

Neuville has been disappointing in the second half of the season and I don't think he deserved the title. I am hoping that 2019 will be Tanak's year but, despite not being a big fan of the Citroen, I would like to see Ogier challenging.

Hyundai - great car, great drivers but still no glory

Neuville has not the mentality of a champion and Ogier was the most deserving champion at the end. Poor season by Mikkelsen otherwise I think they could challenge at least for the manufacturers title. Sordo and Paddon with a part time drive did a lot better

GasperG has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
Ogier, great driver deserves the title
Toyota, great car deserves the title
Hyundai and Neuville, good car and good driver, just not good enough, particulary not good enough in the second half of the season.

I expect Citroen to be in the fight with Toyota next year for manufacturer's title.

Well done Ogier, he deserves the title, although I think Tanak has been the number 1 driver this season. His luck in the final 3 rallies really deserted him.

Ogier seems to have to wait later each season to win the title, so this has been the toughest. Will he finally be dethroned in 2019?
