Kris Meeke
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Meeke's abysmal start for the 2017 season took a turn to a better in a best possible way - with a win. True to his hard charging nature he almost threw the win away when he went off in the final stage. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Like almost all drivers, also Ogier suffered from overheating engine on first day. Additionally, he spun on second day and lost a little time which might have made all the difference in the end after Meeke's drama. 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 has thrown away two wins so far and this time he didn't even challenge for the win. All three Hyundais had problems with blocked fuel filters which cost them varying amounts of time. 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)
Toyota's Latvala, the winner of the previous round, suffered from having to sweep the road and overheating, finally being able to overhaul his team mate to finish sixth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
