He was being tailed by Hyundai WRC driver Neuville till the final day but due to his overnight lead, Rossi went away with the winning position.
Rossi had a decent lead of 33.6 seconds to his competitor at the 2nd position on the final day of race, and eventually scored a victory with an overall lead of more than 50 seconds.
