Sebastian Ogier has said he is pleased with his season so far, as the 2013 World Rally Championship passes the half way mark at Rally d'Italia Sardegna.

The Frenchman has won three of the six races so far this season, but in Greece last time out he had to settle for tenth after a fuel pressure problem.

Ogier, however, says such problems are expected with a young team, and that he would take the same run of form again in the second half of the season: "This is the kind of thing you can run into when you are competing with a new, young team," he confirmed.

"We cannot complain as after six rallies it was the first big problem we had, so I'm pretty sure that now it's sorted. Everything was fine this morning [in qualifying]."

Ogier also says he is pleased with his own performance this season, and is still hungry for victories: "I'm very happy as we are almost halfway through the season," he added.

"We've had five good results and only one bad, and I didn't do any mistakes so I want to continue like that. I want even more victories, and to finish the Championship at the position where we are today."
