Essentially the same stage as in 2012, a revised finish extends the distance by 50 metres. Based on medium to wide roads, it is one of the fastest stages of the rally. It has a good ice base until the final few kilometres. It forms the Power Stage, with bonus points for the fastest three drivers.
How the action unfolded:
Rally Sweden winner Sebastien Ogier ensured a perfect weekend by claiming three bonus points for his 2013 FIA World Rally Championship campaign by winning the Power Stage.
The 29-year-old Frenchman was fastest in his Volkswagen Polo R by 0.9sec from team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala, who took two extra points.
The final Power Stage point was collected by Mads Ostberg. The Ford Fiesta RS pilot finished 2.3sec behind Latvala.
Mikko Hirvonen had a troubled weekend but hoped to gain something from the Power Stage. The Finn, who had been third in the running order, dropped down the start positions for the final stage and had the advantage of better road conditions in his Citroen DS3.
However, he missed out on points by finishing fourth fastest, 1.7sec behind Ostberg.
