Seb.Ogier is On Fire - Day 2 | Rally Sweden - WRC

Sebastien Ogier screams his Polo WRC to be the fastest.
Sebastien Ogier in his VW Polo R WRC is the fastest man on snow / ice at the end of Day 2 of Rally Sweden. He started his winning streak and the dominance since the opening stage of the day, totaling of 5 stage wins today. His team-mate Jari Matti-Latvala has been equally competitive, but couldn't manage to out-win any stage, which is accepted with his experience in his new car.

Senior Seb, Loeb was surprisingly competitive on the pure-white-stuff, which was not seen in the past and he sits in second overall, with a large 30s+ down the leader. Latvala is in third with a little margin of 1.7s down the nine-timer.

A Frustrated Mikko Hirvonen..
It was a disaster rally for Mikko Hirvonen as his car stuck into a snow bank and lost more than 25 minutes and fell way below point scoring points, to end the day at 30th overall. However, it was the local young Swedish lad, Pontus Tidemand who put a surprising and applauding performance in his homeland by finishing 6th overall at the end of the leg, in his first ever WRC event.

Thierry Neuville takes a big leap!
There were many off's to other drivers, but few managed without much time penalties with the help of the nearby spectating crowd, including Dani Sordo.

And this year's Colin's Crest trophy goes to Thierry Neuville of Qatar M-Sport WRT.
