Kalle Rovanpera
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Rovanpera started well despite having no actual experience from Croatia. He utilized road position and clean roads and built up sizeable lead until puncture shrunk it to 18 seconds. On final day, he was caught in rain with mostly hard tyres but with convincing Power Stage win he retook lead and won. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Both Tanak (pictured) and Neuville started well but latter encountered lots of problems and fell back. Tanak on the other hand drove steadily and with superb time on SS11 moved closer to Rovanpera. On final day, he started with soft wet tyres which helped him to take slender lead on rainy SS19. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Craig Breen

Neuville's troubles and penalties allowed Breen (pictured) to gain third and keep it until on rainy SS19 he finally lost position to Neuville. Breen didn't regain podium position even after Neuville briefly went off on Power Stage as he had lost too much time on previous one. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
