Sebastien Loeb

After five years and only handful of outings Loeb came to Spain just to enjoy and refresh memories. On final morning he alone chose hard tyres and be it luck or experience, but it was correct choice and he jumped to lead. In the end, his winning margin shrunk from that but held until the end.

Sebastien Ogier

Early on championship contenders Ogier and Neuville were well down the leaderboard and championship-outsider Tanak was leading. Steady progress throughout second day saw him move up and a massive push on SS17 brought Seb within 3,6 seconds of Loeb and possible win. Evans was 3rd in a close finish.

Thierry Neuville

At home event, local man Sordo was for long the fastest Hyundai, holding a podium place and even lead momentarily before rain hits him hard on SS13. Neuville's (pictured) title hopes are dealt a blow as Ogier finishes higher and regains championship lead. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak

Tanak (pictured) led until puncturing in second day and dropping down the leaderboard. After that Latvala, who had also punctured on first day and lost little less time, moves to lead. Unfortunately Loeb's tyre choice works better on third morning and he also clouts a barrier, losing lots of time. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
