This was the final event of the 2014 season, and also the final event of Mikko Hirvonen's storied 12-year career as the Finn announced his retirement from the WRC prior to the rally, following that of Sébastien Loeb in 2013.

Double World Champion Sébastien Ogier won the event in his Volkswagen Polo R, as the soon-to-be-retiring Hirvonen finished second, receiving a podium in his WRC swansong and a third place finish from Mads Østberg. Jari-Matti Latvala suffered an off on stage 9, eliminating his hopes for a fourth victory of the season. Shakedown winner Andreas Mikkelsen suffered intercom problems, but not before crashing out on Stage 19.

Jari Ketomaa won the WRC-2 division, but this didn't stop Nasser Al-Attiyah from becoming champion. This was the Qatari olympic Shooter's second title following the PWRC success of 2006.

WRC-3 victory went to local hero Alastair Fisher, as the season finished with Stéphane Lefebvre winning both the WRC-3 and WRC Junior titles.
