In Pictures: Rallye Monte-Carlo

The championship's opening round is always highly anticipated - but last week's 87th running of Rallye Monte-Carlo was extra special.

From the first appearance of this year's exciting new car and driver combinations to the closest-ever Monte finish, it was a thrilling start to what promises to be a terrific season.

The Monte is one of the most photogenic rallies too, and the wintry mountain scenery served to inspire Red Bull photographer Jaanus Ree and the talented @World team.

As we wrap up our reports from the event, here is a selection of some of our favourite photographs.
