Loeb Still Leads - Rally Monte-Carlo, Day 2 | WRC - 2013

Sebastien Loeb - Citroen DS3 WRC
Sebastien Ogier - VW Polo R WRC
Sebastien Loeb continues to dominate on the second day of Rally Monte-Carlo, with a comfortable lead of 1m34.8s. It was more of a controlled aggression by the driver/codrivers to tackle the tricky and mostly frozen twisty narrow mountain roads of Monaco.

Today first stage, SS5 was won by VW driver Sebastien Ogier in his Polo R WRC, while the Russian Evgeny Novikov claimed SS6 in his works Ford Fiesta RS WRC. Juha Hanninen went fastest and won his debut WRC stage win in another Qatar M-Sport WRT's, Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

Dani Sordo did not have any stage win, but rather a consistent drive to ensure he finished third overall by the end of day, i.e., SS10.
