Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
A lot was expected from Toyota whose HQ is situated in the area. They had tested a lot, had drivers with local knowledge and were defending winners. And how they delivered, Tanak was in a class of his own, posting fastest times whenever he wanted and took win in great style. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Mads Ostberg

Citroen's blistering pace, credited to new front suspension geometry, was surprising. Ostberg (pictured) fought valiantly, early on with Tanak for the lead but lost touch on second day when road positions got equal. Mads managed to keep charging Latvala behind him and finished second.

Hayden Paddon

Neuville knew he'd lose time being first on the road. When Mikkelsen went off after miss-heard note, Paddon (pictured) was left to defend Hyundai's honors. He did so very well, fending off Suninen but later had to bow to Lappi's charge. Paddon gained place back after Lappi went off on final morning. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Sebastien Ogier

Ogier had new aero package on his Fiesta but despite (or because) that he was slowest of the M-Sport Fords. When even local man Suninen struggled, Ford clearly didn't had the speed and to help Ogier's championship chances, both Evans and Suninen let Ogier past.
