Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Nobody had flawless rally, not even Ogier despite the fact that he dominated the event. Starting fastest in the dark of Thursday's stages, he still had hairy half-spin and next day slipped to a ditch for half a minute. As he himself put it, he had least problems which ensured his fifth Monte win. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Tanak's first rally with new team and he was instantly on speed. Slight initial balance problems were rectified and for most of the rally Tanak trailed only Ogier, waiting to see if he'd make mistake. Overall, Toyota had a very good event. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke

As much cannot be said of Citroen whose two cars struggled throughout the event. Meeke was unlucky to get stuck in a ditch on SS1 for two minutes but lucky to benefit from problems of others and finish fourth. Team-mate Breen suffered from brake problems which dropped him minutes. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Thierry Neuville

Huyndai didn't fare much better. Mikkelsen was fast but retired with alternator problem on first night, Neuville lost over four minutes on snow bank in SS1 and Sordo went off to retire for good. Neuville posted some good times and managed to finish fifth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
