Hirvonen suffered from his road position during Legs 1 and 3. He finished second on the road but as Citroens were found to have unhomologated rollbars and were penalized, Mikko took win. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Daniel Sordo
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
One of the surprises of the rally was Dani Sordo who was able to put pressure on Mikko and for a moment it looked like he would finish second overall. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
