Sebastien Ogier increases his lead in Sardinia as footage of Evgeny Novikov’s lucky escape emerges.
One of the original WRC rallies, the Italian round has been a fixture on the calendar since 1973, only missing the 2010 series. For years, the rally took place in Sanremo, Tuscany, but now rally fans get the chance to shake off the autumn and enjoy the high life in Olbia, a port in the north of Sardinia. This year the all-gravel race is the penultimate rally on the schedule which means fans will also have a good chance of seeing the world champion crowned.
