Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Superb performance from Ogier who was initially hampered by his road position but made significant progress on second day. After Loeb punctured and Sordo had a slow time on SS14, he jumped to lead which he would not relinquish. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Dani Sordo

Sordo's low starting position gave him an excellent opportunity to post good times and that's what he did. Even leading at one point he finished second overall despite puncture on power stage. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Citroen stole limelight as Sebastien Loeb was back with the team. His low starting position more than compensated his lack of recent experience but puncture on SS14 dropped him for the lead. Meeke (pictured) then became leading Citroen but slid into a ditch and managed only third. 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 arrived with great hopes but sadly found that they had not cured the overheating problem. Tanak somehow managed to drive around the problem but even he succumbed to it on second day. Eventually Latvala (pictured) was best Toyota at lowly eight overall and disappointing rally for the team. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
