Jari-Matti Latvala doubled his Rally of Mexico lead over Volkswagen teammate and triple world champion Sebastien Ogier in the early stage of Saturday's action.

The Finnish driver had been 32 seconds ahead of his French stablemate overnight and after being the fastest through three stages on Saturday, he was 1min 16.3 seconds to the good.

He is also more than two minutes ahead of Spain's Dani Sordo in a Hyundai.

Latvala has yet to score a point after two rounds of this year's world championship while Ogier raced to victory in both events, in Monte Carlo and Sweden.
