Down the pack, the top 5 are sticking with their respective positions, with Mikko trailing behind the leader by a mere 5 seconds. We can expect team-order now or what is the question? I think Citroen WRT will give him a relaxation this time around and let him charge on his homeground.
We can definitely say it was a lucky day for Novikov, as he crashed on SS7 & still managed to complete the stage and also made it to the service. His car was mostly fixed in the service & he went on to make good times.. now that called luck, and being very lucky for once in a time!! Also it is not an easy feeling and position to drive the damaged car through the next stage before the service..
Latvala is on third overall at the end of the day with about 21+seconds behind the leader & Petter a second down Latvala. Mads Ostberg sits at 5th position with about 47+seconds behind the overall leader Sebastien Loeb.
More updates to follow soon.
