Sébastien Ogier won his first tarmac rally, and became the first driver other than his team-mate Sébastien Loeb to win the rally since it became a world championship event in 2002. Ogier benefitted from a puncture suffered by Loeb on the last stage of Saturday's running, and eventually won by just under 40 seconds from Loeb. This also resulted in some controversial remarks by Sébastien Ogier claiming there is "justice in the sport" referencing his prior displeasure with his team's decision to have Ogier hold off while teammate Sébastien Loeb held the lead. Meanwhile, Dani Sordo finished third, taking the first podium for the Mini WRC Team since its return to the sport.
In the SWRC, Ott Tänak took a comfortable victory by over five minutes, while in the WRC Academy, Egon Kaur's perfect start to the season was ended, after he finished in eighth place. Craig Breen, who finished second to Kaur in the previous round in Finland, took his first victory in the class.
