Thierry Neuville

Neuville was initially beaten by new recruit Tanak but on SS2 he posted a stunning time which catapulted him into lead. A few stages later Tanak crashed heavily, leaving Neuville to battle with Toyotas alone. Towards the end he found fine speed, winning most stages and claiming coveted Monte win.

Sebastien Ogier

Ogier was immediately on speed with his new mount, taking early lead. On next day, his biggest rival seemed to come within his own team as Evans was even faster and they alternated in the lead. Final day saw Ogier put up recovery but couldn't beat Neuville and instead finished second. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Esapekka Lappi

In first night all M-Sport Fords suffered from overheating as their cooler intakes were blocked with leaves. That cost a lot of time and Lappi's recovery to fourth was all thanks to problems of others. He later admitted that car did not have pace to fight even without first night's problems.
