Ott Tanak
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Hyundai was tipped to be an underdog in conditions that Toyota was assumed to know better. They fared far better than expected, Tanak charged into lead on opening day which he easily defended on the subsequent days. In addition, both Neuville and Breen drove very well and finished third and fourth. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Kalle Rovanpera
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Despite having competed in the event previously, Toyotas suffered from their starting positions and also struggled with chronic understeer. Despite having an brief off on opening day, Rovanpera finished second overall but only barely kept charging Neuville behind. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Teemu Suninen
(Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window)
Suninen was on familiar conditions but Ford's performance was not enough, newer cars went past him from left and right. Surprisingly, he was not much faster than Greensmith but barely managed to score points, finishing one place ahead of his team mate. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
