Thierry Neuville can extend championship lead in Germany

Ogier and Tanak will be on a charge

Rally Germany
BT Sport 3, starts 6.08pm Thursday

Thierry Neuville holds a 21-point lead in the world championship but don't expect him to take things easy in this week's Rally Germany.

Five-time world champion Sebastien Ogier narrowed the gap by six points in Finland last time and is a three-time winner on the roads around Trier. The French phenomenon certainly won't have given up on adding to his title tally.

Ott Tanak scored his second win in four events in Finland, and last year's Rally Germany winner will be high on confidence.

Ogier and Tanak vie for favouritism but Neuville was leading in Germany last year before a small mistake damaged his car. The Hyundai driver claimed his first WRC victory in the event in 2014 so the Belgian could be a spot of value.

Recommendation
T Neuville
