The Italian superstar drove a Stobart-backed Ford Focus WRC car from 45th on stage one to 12th after the 19th and final stage of one of the toughest events on the WRC calendar.

Wales Rally GB marked Rossi's third World Rally Championship appearance. The Italian made his WRC debut in the 2002 edition of Rally GB, but crashed a Michelin-backed Peugeot 206 after just 17 kilometres of the first forest stage.

Rossi's return, in the 2006 Rally of New Zealand, was much more successful; The Doctor steering a Subaru Impreza up from 24th, to 13th and then 11th over the three days, setting a best stage time of seventh in the process.

Rossi will be back on two wheels during the first test of 2009, at Sepang in Malaysia from February 5-7.
