Sebastien Ogier
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
During recce, region suffered from warm weather and thawed roads were soft and suffered heavy rutting. Ogier was critical about the situation but after re-graded roads froze night before the start, he pushed doubts aside, jumped into lead and won. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Hayden Paddon
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Though initially Paddon wasn't very fast, he improved during the rally. In only his third start in Sweden he scored two stage wins and despite final stage cooling damage scare, finished second. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Mads Ostberg
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Ostberg should have been fast on snow, but his rally was more of steady approach than blinding speed although he was involved in tight fight in mid-rally. 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 DMack tyres weren't quite as inferior on snow as they had been on tarmac so he was able to post relatively good times, fighting well against many drivers in mid-rally shootout. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Craig Breen

Craig Breen was left to run Citroen's colors when Meeke hit rock and retired early, just like in Monte Carlo. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
