Ogier wins the title against stiff opposition
decoration
ogier wins again - but it's not as much his win as it is failure of his opposition to prevent it - highlighted in final round where three drivers arrived with a shot at title and out of the trio only ogier finishes...

loeb's catalunya win - 3rd longest break in days between two wins

New cars
decoration
All teams still had cars fresh from 2017 regulation overhaul and thus no new cars were introduced. Everyone was busy tweaking and fine tuning their cars, most conspicuously M-Sport and Citroen.

M-Sport tried new aerodynamic package in Rally Finland, intending to optimize airflows at the rear in a rally where speeds were extremely high. Package wasn't as big step ahead as hoped. Citroen had been struggling with unpredictable handling of the C3 WRC and first they introduced new rear axle geometry in Argentina and then new parts to front suspension in Finland.
