Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
As a championship leader, Ogier was doomed to sweep the roads for two first days. As usual, this did not stop him from winning but the win and especially the 3 min winning margin is mostly due to fact that everyone else was plagued with at least one major problem.

Hayden Paddon
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Star of the rally was not the winner but Hyundai's second team driver Hayden Paddon. He took full use of swept roads, shot to lead from stage two and held it until noon next day. It is likely that he would have lost the lead anyway, but he hastened it by spinning and stalling on SS17. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Elfyn Evans

Both Ford drivers had transmission problems but Evans fared better, having only to cope with drive shaft problems and finished fourth. Tanak lost much more time when his gearbox seized to sixth gear. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Mads Ostberg

Citroen's fortunes took deep dive on SS2 when Meeke went off and retired, eventually finishing 24th. Ostberg soldiered on and was on course to finish on podium until he lost brakes after an off and dropped to fifth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
