Huyndai held lead for the whole rally, first with Mikkelsen who was forced him out by double puncture and just one spare on second day. Team-mate Neuville (pictured) inherited the lead and held it until the end despite torrential rain slowing him down. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak

By the final day, Tanak was leading M-Sport Ford and third, keeping his eye on Latvala and second place. Heavy rain slowed both drivers ahead of him but still gap for second was too large before Latvala's final stage off elevated Ott to 2nd overall. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Esapekka Lappi

Toyota was running two cars and Lappi (pictured) with less experience was both cautious, slow and eventually finished sixth. Latvala couldn't challenge for the win but was solidly in second place when he went off in Power Stage and retired for good. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke

Citroen's bad year didn't end any better. Both Lefebvre and Breen retired on final day due to offs while Meeke (pictured) had to give up on second day due to broken suspension. His final day saw him elevated to 7th overall due to other drivers' mistakes but far behind everyone else. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
