Rally Monza - 2nd Day - 1st Loop: Continuous switching to the leaderboard as Ogier moves ahead of Evans

At the end of the first loop of the second day, Sebastien Ogier stole the lead from Elfyn Evans with Dani Sordo moving ahead in the leaderboard.

Sebastien Ogier reclaimed his lead from Elfyn Evans at the end of Stage 11 setting the fastest time in SS10. The Frenchman took the lead at the end of Stage 8 while he lost his first position after the end of Stage 9. However, he managed to take back the lead from his teammate at the end of Stage 10.

Elfyn Evans dropped a place and he is now in second position overall despite the fact that he took the lead from Ogier at the end of Stage 9 as he set the fastest time there. His gap from Ogier is at 5,2 seconds.

Dani Sordo completes the top three and he took advantage of Neuville's mistake in Stage 9.

Thierry Neuville dropped to fourth position overall after the mistake he did in Stage 9. Specifically, he lost the rear of his car on a long right-hander and hit a barrier resulting in dropping 24,2 seconds in this stage while he was trying to restart his car to continue in the stage. After this incident, there was a body damage to his i20 and the bonnet was flapping around. He was losing time in the next stages due to the fact that the aero package was missing. However, he set the fastest time in Stage 8.

Oliver Solberg remains in fifth position overall setting the fourth fastest time in Stage 10.

Takamoto Katsuta is sixth overall and he set the fourth fastest time in Stage 9.

Teemu Suninen is in seventh position overall and he set the third fastest time in Stage 10. However, he ran wide on a hairpin-right and he touched the barrier with the rear of his car in Stage 11 dropping 18,3 seconds.

Gus Greensmith comes right behind the Hyundai driver and he faced brake issues in all morning stages.

Kalle Rovanpera is still ninth and he is far away from the race pace.

Adrien Fourmaux restarted today inder the regulations of Rally2 after the crash he had on Friday which caused some damage to his Fiesta.

For the tyre choices, all the drivers took with them five hard compound tyres.
