Weather: cloudy 6 to 14 celsius Fi­nal-morn­ing thriller works out well for Paddon. Volkswagen con­tent with two cars on the podium and an increased ad­van­tage in the man­u­fac­tur­ers’ race. Sordo closes on Mikkelsen, but the Nor­we­gian’s done enough to hold third. Neuville takes sixth, edg­ing Li­gato by 9.7s, while Sol­berg drops time on the fi­nal day and fin­ishes be­hind the sec­ond fac­tory Fi­esta of Camilli. Ni­co­las Fuchs ben­e­fits from Lat­vala’s pow­er­stage prob­lem (the Finn fixes his mo­tor and drives across the line a mas­sive 27m37.6s slower than Paddon) to move into the top 10 over­all – mean­ing a dou­ble cel­e­bra­tion with his WRC2 suc­cess ( see box, right).
