Østberg goes one better in 2020

Mads Østberg became a world champion for the first time thanks to his WRC 2 category win on Sunday at ACI Rally Monza. Østberg had already leapfrogged title rival Pontus Tidemand at that point and snatched the lead as Sunday beckoned.

Fourmaux’s Friday pace made him an early contender for the Monza win.
