Kris Meeke

Not much was expected from Meeke and Citroen, given their problematic season so far. But Meeke surprised, clinging close to lead over opening day's gravel and then shot onto lead early next day. His run from then on was near perfect and win was a just reward for the performance. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Sebastien Ogier

Ogier came to Spain with both eyes firmly on the drivers' title. He had useful lead over Neuville and wanted to keep that intact and, if possible, extend it. As Neuville retired Ogier was able to breath easier and his second place meant the title is up for grabs in next rally. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Juho Hanninen

Hanninen showed flashes of tarmac speed by winning two stages on second day and finished fourth, though he gained several places thanks to misfortunes of the others. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Dani Sordo

Hyundai and Neuville especially were under lot of pressure if they were to catch Ford and Ogier respectively. Unfortunately rally was complete disaster, all three Hyundais retired with suspension damage. Sordo (pictured) stormed through power stage to claim points for himself.
