Neuville still ahead after completion of Saturday morning loop

Quotes from top drivers


A slightly cautious approach from the Belgian sees him give away 10.1sec to Ogier. His advantage at the top is still healthy at 28.1sec.

“It went okay. I had a clean run – a lot of stones are moving, so a couple of times I had to slow down. I had a clean stage and took it maybe a little bit too careful on the last part.”


Some more time dropped to Tänak on this one. Taka’s advantage over his Hyundai rival is down to 28.1sec heading into the afternoon loop. 

“Maybe enjoying, but maybe not! It’s very difficult and demanding. There are so many changes, and in some sections, you don’t know where you are. It’s hard.”


The Estonian battles his way across some pretty big rocks towards the end and completes in second so far.

“It’s difficult with these artificial stones, and it’s very different from the recce. The last part is rough but the rest of it is okay.”


On a roll! Quickest by a huge 17.4sec and the split times are looking good to the drivers behind. 

“It was okay. I was pretty happy with my notes. I was a bit worried about this one because it’s difficult to see the stones, but I was comfortable.” 


Another good stage for Gus – he’s well in the mix with second so far. 

“I don’t want to pick up any more punctures or anything like that. Just keep it clean – no issues.”


The roof vent on his Fiesta machine has come off, so there’s a lot of dust finding its way into the cockpit! Third, so far, 22.7sec down on the leading time.

“It was really difficult with the dust inside the car. It was difficult to see where the road was.”
