Further back, Martin Prokop was seventh, with WRC2 class leader, Sepp Weigand eighth in his Skoda Fabia S2000. Peugeot 207 S2000 pilot Olivier Burri and Michal Kosciousko completed the top ten, the latter taking the final senior WRC drivers' point on his first outing with the Lotos Team WRC-run MINI John Cooper Works WRC.
Of the rest, Sebastien Chardonnet took the WRC3 victory – and P13 overall. Chardonnet was the only remaining runner in that class after his only rival, Renaud Poutot, was sidelined on Thursday in SS9.
In terms of major retirements, four works drivers failed to finish. Thierry Neuville was the first to go, when he went out in the last stage on day one, while Novikov and Latvala both retired on the final day in SS14. Juho Hanninen also went out in that test after damaging the front-left wheel on his Qatar WRT Fiesta RS WRC.
The WRC now moves to Sweden next month for round two, with that event running from February 7-10.
