First round of World Rally Championship in Monte Carlo has ended today with thrilling battle until last special stage of a rally.

And what rally it was, the great one. We could enjoy in the drives of the best rally drivers in world. Some were missing but season is long and it will be chances for everyone.

WRC champion Ott Tanak retired early in the rally with spectacular crash so he left top three drivers - Evans, Ogier and Neuville to battle until the end for the victory.

And Neuville won in the end after great drive today where he posted fastest times on all four stages of the day.

Congratulations for the victory, Thierry...
