Nine-time world champions Sébastien Loeb and Daniel Elena were the defending rally winners. Citroën Total WRT, the team they drove for in 2018, were the defending manufacturers' winners.[4] The Finnish crew of Kalle Rovanperä and Jonne Halttunen were the defending rally winners in the World Rally Championship-2 category, but they did not defend their titles as they were promoted to the newly-created WRC-2 Pro class.[5]

Thierry Neuville and Nicolas Gilsoul won the rally for the first time in their career. Their team, Hyundai Shell Mobis WRT, were the manufacturers' winners.[6] The Citroën Total crew of Mads Østberg and Torstein Eriksen won the WRC-2 Pro category, finishing first in the combined WRC-2 category, while the French crew of Eric Camilli and Benjamin Veillas won the wider WRC-2 class.[7]

Ott Tänak and Martin Järveoja finished second overall as well as taking the power stage victory, which is enough for them to seal their maiden World Rally Championship titles.[8] This makes Tänak the first non-French driver to be World Rally Champion since Petter Solberg won the 2003 World Rally Championship title, ending a run of 5,831 days in which a Sébastien was the current champion. With a 2-3 finish in the Pro category, Škoda Motorsport took the first World Rally Championship-2 Pro manufacturers’ title.[7]

ReportEdit

World Rally CarsEdit

It was a devastating blow for the reigning world champion Sébastien Ogier's title hope. After setting the fastest stage time at the opening stage, the Frenchman's C3 was crawling through the rest of the morning loop due to power steering failure and loss of hydraulics, which lost the six-time world champion nearly three minutes.[13] Citroën's rally went from bad to worse as Esapekka Lappi retired from the rally with engine issues in the afternoon loop.[14] Hyundai ended the first leg in 1-2-3 after all three drivers set impressive times, until Kris Meeke broke the monopoly after the first stage of the second leg.[15] However, his position was short-lived as the Briton understeer into the barrier and retired from the day.[16] Despite Meeke's retirement, the Korean squad's 1-2-3 was still under threat from the title-chasing Ott Tänak, who won four stages on Saturday.[17] The championship leader was flying through the power stage and snatched second from local hero Dani Sordo to seal his maiden WRC title.[8] Thierry Neuville eventually won the rally for the first time in Spain.[6]

World Rally Championship-2 ProEdit

Mads Østberg dominated Friday with an over-40-second lead going into Saturday.[18] However, the Norwegian's lead was under a big threat from the freshly-crowned WRC-2 Pro champion Kalle Rovanperä, until the youngster hit a post in the Salou stage and damaged the rear axle on his Fabia R5.[19] That left Østberg comfortable to win the category.[7]

World Rally Championship-2Edit

Nil Solans took an early lead, but a double puncture dropped the local hero over eight minutes.[18] Championship leader Pierre-Louis Loubet edged Eric Camilli by only 1.5 seconds after Friday, but Camilli surpassed Loubet and built a comfortable lead before the day ended. Championship contender Benito Guerra retired from the rally due to mechanical issues.[19]

On Sunday, Loubet went off the road and beached his Fabia, which dropped him to fifth. Althrough the Frenchman still remained on top, but his lead was down to just three points. Camilli won the class in the end to give C3 R5 an 1-2 finish in the combined R5 class with Østberg.[7]
