AGOSTA PLAGE, Corsica -- Jari-Matti Latvala won the Tour of Corsica on Sunday for his third world rally championship victory this season and 15th of his career.

The Finnish driver increased his lead over Elfyn Evans to 43.1 seconds during a day dominated by world champion Sebastien Ogier.

Ogier, who clinched his third successive WRC title after winning Rally Australia in September, retired Friday after a gearbox failure.
