Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Tanak's rally got off to a bad start as he hit rock on SS2, damaging steering and dropping well back. He didn't give up, instead posted string of fastest times and shot into lead just three stages later. On subsequent days he extended his lead, scoring his first win with Toyota in convincing manner.

Thierry Neuville

Neuville was initially slower than Mikkelsen but after he went off and punctured, Neuville got to podium. On second day, several good times saw him get past Meeke to second overall which he then didn't lose. He also won Power Stage to close gap on Ogier in championship.

Sebastien Ogier

Ogier was relatively fast initially, but sweeping meant he wasn't able to challenge for the lead. Not even after his road position improved on second day but with some luck and lots of perseverance he finished fourth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Citroen fielded a changed suspension geometry in hopes of extracting better handling in wider set of conditions. Meeke was happier but puncture on SS15 meant he lost two minutes and fell way back. He then concentrated on experimenting with setups for upcoming Portugal. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
