Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Ogier headed home as a clear winner but story is not that simple. He fought hard for the lead with Kris Meeke and for first two days was unable to pull away. 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 had final stage scare when his transmission stuck to 2WD. Hyundai's new car had troubled start as set-up was initially too soft but clever tyre strategy on third day got them two stage wins. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Mads Ostberg
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Mads Ostberg was back with Ford and his approach to new (though) familiar team was steady and careful. That paid dividends in the end as he was fourth despite not showing any great speed. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Stephane Lefebvre
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Citroen got back only one car - that of Stephane Lefebvre - because the second fastest man of the rally - Kris Meeke - holed his gearbox in SS12 and was forced to retire. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
