Fastest Ford in the rally was Ott Tanak, who proved that car still has speed if it's driven properly. His charge was hampered by a puncture and slippery conditions but performance was very impressive all in all. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Thierry Neuville

Citroen and Meeke had disappointing rally, suffering overly much from slippery conditions and lack of traction. Kris didn't challenge for top honours and was happy just to finish while team-mate Breen rolled and couldn't restart due to extensive damage. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
