Gronholm wins the rally, Burns the drivers' crown.
Subaru driver Richard Burns is the new FIA World Rally Champion, after the Englishman finished third overall on the Network Q Rally of Great Britain this afternoon.
Burns and navigator Robert Reid were happy to let the outgoing champion Marcus Grönholm and his co-driver Timo Rautiainen claim the rally victory, ahead of fellow Peugeot driver Harri Rovanperä. Peugeot's one-two success capped the French marque's victory in the FIA World Rally Championship for Manufacturers.
