Sebastien Ogier

Ogier broke rear damper on opening day, losing minutes as he drove through cautiously and thought he had lost any chance of victory. As it turned out, others fared way worse as Rovanpera got stuck in dusty ruts and Evans clipped a rock on same stage and retired. Rain on Saturday came too late to hamper Ogier, who went on to finish first after Hyundais hit problems. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Ott Tanak

As all three Toyotas had problems in first day, Hyundai seemed set to benefit, their only loss being Sordo. On Saturday, rain hit worst at Tanak (pictured) whose windscreen misted and he lost minutes. Still, Neuville was leading but on final day his rear suspension collapsed and he retired.

Gus Greensmith

M-Sport Fords were present in minimum strength to avoid costly COVID quarantines upon return home. Their two drivers dueled mainly between themselves at the back of the leaderboard, Fourmaux having early advantage and eventually coming home first but received ten second penalty which dropped him 0,1 seconds behind Greensmith (pictured).
