Sebastien Ogier began the defence of his World Rally Championship title in style by winning the season-opening Monte Carlo Rally for his 39th career victory.

The Frenchman has now won four in a row going back to last season.

It was the perfect way to mark his debut with M-Sport, who were denied a one-two after Ogier’s teammate Ott Tanak suffered engine problems.

Estonian Tanak had to settle for third behind Finland’s Jari-Matti Latvala for Toyota, who were making their return to the sport after a 17-year absence.

Spaniard Dani Sordo, Ireland’s Craig Breen and Welshman Elfyn Evans completed the top six.
