Rally Finland: Win is 'a dream come true' for Ogier

"I knew my closest rival was out of the race for points and then I had a good opportunity to make good points," Ogier said. "My lead in the World Rally Championship has increased, but I am not concentrating on that today – I just want to enjoy the win with my team now," he insisted.

But the reality is that Ogier could now clinch the 2013 WRC title as early as the next race.

"Mathematically, it's possible, but quite difficult," he said. "The most important thing is that it happens - I don't care where, if it's Australia, France or even later, I will be very happy for that.

"It will be a big fight to the end of the season. I hope it happens as soon as possible to get my mind really clear - then I can push even more completely to the limit," he added. "This is another great step."
