Frenchman Sebastien Ogier claimed a hat-trick of World Rally Championships when he eased to victory in the Rally of Australia on Sunday.
With three rounds of the WRC remaining, in France, Spain and the UK, Ogier is now on 235 points and cannot be beaten for the 2015 title.
Ogier, alongside French co-driver Julien Ingrassia, beat Volkswagen Polo teammate Jari-Matti Latvala of Finland by 12.3 seconds to take his seventh win of the season.
Northern Ireland's Kris Meeke, in a Citroen DS, was in third place, 32.6 seconds behind Ogier.
Latvala led the Frenchman after the first day but once Ogier settled into his rhythm he steadily reeled in the leaders and finished day two 0.3 seconds ahead of Meeke.
He continued his dominance into the final day, winning all four stages on Sunday.
