NEUVILLE FASTEST; OGIER MAINTAINS COMFORTABLE LEAD
El Mosquito was delayed slightly as a result of the opening stage stoppage.
Ott Tänak was the fastest of the early runners, but Thierry Neuville ran quickest and took another little nibble into Elfyn Evans’s hold on second and reduced the Welshman’s advantage to just 10.9 seconds. Sébastien Ogier came home in third and his rally lead was trimmed to 26.6 seconds.
