Jari-Matti Latvala
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
VW scored 1-2-3 which was not very surprising itself but road to there had several. Surprise 1: that Latvala did not crash under pressure from Ogier. Surprise 2: that Latvala couldn't capitalise his road position. Surprise 3: that Ogier did not not seem to suffer from his road position. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kris Meeke
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Kris Meeke was the closest rival to Volkswagens and he battled especially hard with Mikkelsen until broken rear rollbar rendered his DS3 difficult to drive. Team mate Ostberg fared even worse as faulty turbo sensor cost him a lot more time. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
M-Sport fielded new, improved Fiesta which left Evans stranded on second stage with electrical problem. Tanak fared better, eventually finishing fifth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Dani Sordo
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Hyundai had very mixed fortunes. Neuville wasn't very fast at any point and went off in second day, once again. Paddon continued to improve and at one point he was highest placed Hyundai until Sordo struck back and claimed that spot. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
