Of the rest, Ford Abu Dhabi WRT's Jari-Matti Latvala
was 14th after a catalogue of problems, ahead of Monster WRT man and Gymkhana star Ken Block in 17th and M-Sport Stobart
'guest' runner Aaron Burkart in 23rd.
There were a number retirements, most noticeably in addition to Meeke, M-Sport Stobart's Mads Ostberg. He crashed out this morning in SS16. However he was already running way down the order, after damaging his cars suspension in SS3 on Friday and losing more than 8 minutes. He also had more issues on Saturday with two punctures in the final two stages.
The WRC now heads 'down under' next, with Rally Australia taking place from September 8-11.
