Elfyn Evans
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Evans took lead after SS2 and never gave it up, taking maximum benefit out of his local knowledge and performance of the DMack tyres. It was his first win and healed wounds of last-minute defeat in Rally Argentina. He also became season's third first-time winner. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Thierry Neuville
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Neuville started the rally with very slim hopes of the drivers' title. Initially he was behind Ogier after a slight off but climbed little by little until on SS12 he got second overall. That was highest Thierry would get as Evans was untouchable, helping to secure the crown for Ogier. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Jari-Matti Latvala
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Latvala was unhappy with understeering well into the rally, trying to cure it with damper settings but only with limited success. On final day he lost hard earned 4th place on polished roads and ended rally with just 0,5 seconds behind Mikkelsen. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke

On first day Meeke was hampered by his road position far behind leaders but still managed to hold for fourth place for a long time. On second day he stalled on chicane and dropped to 7th, from where he couldn't recover despite keeping in touch with others. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
