Sebastien Ogier claimed a fourth successive World Rally Championship title with victory in Spain.

The 32-year-old Frenchman beat local hopeful Dani Sordo by 15.6 seconds to clinch the title with two races to spare.

"It's fantastic to take the championship two rallies before the end of the season, I couldn't do much more," Ogier told

"I had so much fun behind the steering wheel this weekend. Joining the list of big names who are four-time title winners is just amazing."

Ogier joins fellow Frenchman Sebastien Loeb and Finnish duo Tommi Makinen and Juha Kankkunen as the only drivers to have won the title four times.

Loeb won the nine world titles previous to Ogier's run meaning a Frenchman has held the crown ever since 2004.
