'Lucky boy'

Meeke said: "After a jump, I took a hit. I'm really a lucky boy. What a way to finish the rally. I was in the hands of God. I finally made my way between the cars but had punctured the front left tyre. When I crossed the line I didn't know whether I had won or not."

Meeke dominated the weekend, leading from the opening stage on the second day in his Citroen to finish ahead of world champion Sebastien Ogier in the M-Sport/Ford.
