World champion Sebastien Ogier registered his eighth win of the year in the season-ending Wales Rally GB, but the Frenchman was in no mood to celebrate in the wake of the Paris shootings.
The Volkswagen Polo R driver beat Kris Meeke - recording the best finish in a home event by a Briton in 15 years - in his Citroen DS 3 by 26 seconds with Norway's Andreas Mikkelsen third in another Polo R.
At the end of the final power stage Ogier, after a third successive victory in the event, got out of his car and draped a tricolour across his windscreen and the French national flag was in evidence again at a muted podium presentation.
Victory here is the best way to finish the season but there is no point to celebrate anything. We have other things on our mind. It has been a difficult weekend.

Wales and British and Irish Lions centre Jonathan Davies has become the latest international to sign a National Dual Contract as it was announced he is returning from France to re-join his home region, the Scarlets.
Davies’ return takes the total number of NDC players now on joint WRU and Regional contracts based in Wales to 17.
The 27-year-old will return to his region of origin in Wales under the terms of the NDC, which has been jointly announced by the WRU and Scarlets today.
Davies, an established international with 48 caps for Wales and a successful Lions tour under his belt, is happy to be returning home.
I am delighted to have signed a National Dual Contract and to be returning to the Scarlets.
I have immensely enjoyed my time in France and would like to thank Clermont Auvergne for the opportunity.
The joint commitment between the WRU and Regions is driving for success and I believe the time is right to return to Wales and signing a NDC is the best decision for me rugby wise.
We are delighted to have been able to bring a player of Jon’s quality home to Wales from France to play for Scarlets. His return demonstrates the value of the NDC’s as a means of ensuring as many of the most talented players as possible play their rugby here in Wales. Here in Wales our four Regions are ambitious for success and the WRU will continue to work alongside them to achieve that.
Last week Ospreys players Scott Baldwin, James King, Dan Baker and Rory Thornton were added to the previous list of twelve NDCs.
The players already contracted were Sam Warburton, Alun Wyn Jones, Dan Biggar, Rhys Webb, Dan Lydiate, Scott Williams, Jake Ball, Samson Lee, Rhodri Jones, Tyler Morgan, Hallam Amos and Gareth Anscombe already signed up.
The National Dual Contract structure has been agreed by the WRU and the four Regions under the terms of their joint Rugby Services Agreement in order to keep the best playing talent in Wales playing for one of the four professional Welsh teams.
