Thierry Neuville

Neuville was fourth before SS7 where carnage saw three drivers retire and others lose time and he came through with stage win and lead. Ironically team-mate Sordo, who was not nominated to score manufacturers' points, was able to keep up with him. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Elfyn Evans

Ogier went off on SS5 and retired, leaving Evans (pictured) and part-time recruit Suninen to fly teams' colors. Both performed extremely well, surviving carnage of the first day and ending on podium. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Esapekka Lappi
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Toyota started with great expectations but on second stage Tanak hit rock, damaged engine and retired. On next stage Latvala broke suspension and also retired. That left Lappi alone and he was both careful and fast, ultimately dropping to fifth after receiving penalty for clipping a hay bale. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Mads Ostberg

Citroen's difficult spell continues. Meeke led briefly but then punctured and on second day crashed heavily, which ultimately led team to dismiss him. Breen didn't fare much better though he reached the finish, so it was Ostberg (pictured) who was the best placed Citroen. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
