Ogier not interested in runner-up spot

Three drivers go into next month's final round of the World Rally Championship battling for the runners-up spot - but Frenchman Sebastien Ogier has admitted he's not particularly interested in the position.
Ogier holds that second place ahead of Rally GB - and a solid result on last week's Catalunya Rally could have put his rivals Jari-Matti Latvala and Petter Solberg out of contention.
Ogier went off the road in Spain, while holding second place on the Salou-based event.
Latvala is 11 points behind him, while Solberg is 16 adrift of second.
Ogier said: "I'm not really too bothered about the championship. Okay, it would be nice to be second, but if you are not number one in the championship, I don't think it matters too much where you are. I wanted to try to match [Sebastien] Loeb in Spain, he is the reference for this event."
Solberg added: "I think Rally GB's going to be a great fight between the three of us. It's very exciting."
Latvala said: "Of course, second would be nice for the championship and that's what we're going to be pushing for in Wales."
Solberg has the best record on Britain's round of the championship, having won the event four times in the past.
