MONACO (AP) -- World champion Sebastien Ogier of France protected his overnight lead to win the season-opening Monte Carlo Rally in treacherous conditions on Saturday.

Ogier won three of Friday's five stages to climb from fourth and take the overnight lead, and extended it as the weather conditions became progressively worse throughout the day, with first snow then heavy rain and fog making it particularly difficult for the drivers in the two night sessions.

Overall, Ogier finished 1 minute, 18.9 seconds ahead of countryman Bryan Bouffier and 1:54.3 clear of Britain's Kris Meeke.
