WRC starts: 75
WRC titles: 2

Walter Röhrl won two WRC titles and was a Rallye Monte-Carlo master. He won the classic fixture four times, once each for the four manufacturers for whom he drove. He possessed a tremendous focus for detail, especially in his pace notes, and his 1982 title win, when he fended off four-wheel drive opposition in a rear-wheel drive Opel Ascona, was pure genius.

Colin McRae
Nationality: British
Manufacturers: Subaru, Ford, Citroën, Škoda
WRC starts: 146
WRC titles: 1
WRC wins: 25
WRC podiums: 42

Colin McRae remains the youngest ever WRC champion, aged 27 years and 109 days when he won the 1995 crown. The Scot possessed a remarkable turn of speed and his win-or-bust approach led to many accidents, but also captured the public’s imagination. McRae, sideways at the wheel of a distinctive blue and yellow Subaru, remains one of the sport’s iconic images.
