France's world champion Sebastien Ogier rounded off a stunning season by winning the Rally of Britain in Wales on Sunday.

The success was the ninth win in the 13 race championship for the Volkswagen driver, a record only bettered in the past by outgoing champion Sebastien Loeb who did not race a full calendar this season.

Ogier finished ahead of Finnish team mate Jari-Matti Latvala, winner in Britain for the past two years with Ford, while Ford's Thierry Neuville took second place in the championship by claiming the final podium position.

The 29-year-old Ogier secured the manufacturers' title for Volkswagen in the penultimate round in Spain, having secured his maiden title on home soil last month.
