Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Alén also won Rally Sanremo 1986, that was eventually annulled by FISA and is therefore not considered as a WRC win.
  2. ^ According to World Rally Archive (http://www.juwra.com), Alén won 821 stages. Markku Alén also won special stages in the following rallies that are not yet taken into account by www.juwra.com : 15 stages in Sweden 1977 (source: Sport Auto n°182, March 1977), 5 stages in South Pacific 1977 (source: Auto Hebdo n°63, 19–26 May 1977), 1 stage in Safari 1990 (source: Auto Hebdo n°723, 18 April 1990). Moreover, he is said to have won 11 special stages in Sanremo 1974 although reliable sources are missing as of now. Also, Markku Alén won 20 special stages in annulled Sanremo 1986 (source: Auto Hebdo n°545, 22 October 1986).
  3. ^ According to World Rally Archive, Sainz won 756 stages. Sainz also won one special stage in Safari Rally 1991 (source: Auto Hebdo n°772, 4 April 1991), that is not yet taken into account by www.juwra.com.
  4. ^ Kankkunen also won 5 special stages in annulled Sanremo 1986 (source: Auto Hebdo n°545, 22 October 1986).
  5. ^ According to World Rally Archive, Mikkola won 654 stages. Mikkola also won special stages in the following rallies that are not yet taken into account by www.juwra.com : 1 stage in Acropolis 1976 (source: Sport Auto n°174, July 1976, and Auto Hebdo), 1 stage in Sweden 1977 (source: Sport Auto n°182, March 1977), 10 stages in Acropolis 1977 (source: Auto Hebdo n°66, 9–16 June 1977, and Sport Auto n°186, July 1977).
  6. ^ According to World Rally Archive, Vatanen won 542 stages. Vatanen also won at least 46 special stages in South Pacific 1977. He actually won a 47th special stage in this rally but it is unclear whether the results of this stage were annulled or not (source: Auto Hebdo n° 63, 19–26 May 1977).
  7. ^ Lancia also won Rally Sanremo 1986, that was annulled by FISA and is therefore not counted as a WRC win.
  8. ^ Elena has one start in the WRC as a driver, which is not included.
  9. ^ Includes only timed stage rallies. The World Rally Championship has in the past also featured endurance events where "unachievable" target times were assigned to the stages, and competitors received a penalty point for each minute their stage time was over the target time. At the 1973 Safari Rally, Shekhar Mehta and Harry Källström finished with the same amount of penalty minutes (6 hours and 46 minutes), and at the 1985 Rallye Côte d'Ivoire, Toyota teammates Juha Kankkunen and Björn Waldegård had the same amount of penalty minutes (4 hours and 46 minutes). Mehta and Kankkunen took the wins by tiebreakers.
  10. ^ Markku Alén's 1978 FIA Cup for Drivers title is not included.
  11. ^ Sandro Munari's 1977 FIA Cup for Drivers title is not included.
