Rally Estonia - 3rd Day - 1st Loop: Rovanpera extends his gap over Evans, puncture for Lappi

At the end of the morning loop of the third day in Estonia, Kalle Rovanpera remains in front with Elfyn Evans and Ott Tanak following him.

Kalle Rovanpera is still leading Rally Estonia and set the fastest time in Stage 11, 12 and 13. However, he believed that he had a bad stage in SS10.

Elfyn Evans remains second overall and was the fastest driver in Stage 10. Moreover, the air cooling scoop on the side of his Yaris was missing at the end of Stage 11.

Ott Tanak completes the top three and said at the end of Stage 11 that he had to work on the brakes. Moreover, there was a puddle of transmission oil left on the ground as he pulled away from the stop line in SS11.

Thierry Neuville climbed to fourth place overall and said at the end of Stage 10 that he wanted to find a better set-up for the next stages. Finally, there was a crack in the car's windscreen in Stage 11 and the Belgian driver said that Martijn Wydaeghe had a lot of pain after some landings in the same stage.

Takamoto Katsuta is now fifth from seventh overall and took the fifth place at the end of Stage 12.

Adrien Fourmaux lost his place over Katsuta at the end of Stage 12 and is in sixth place while he struggled with the set-up of his Puma in Stage 10.

Esapekka Lappi dropped from fourth to seventh after SS12 as the rear tyre dropped from the rim in that stage resulting in losing more than two minutes after his stopping to change the wheel. Finally, he had a spin on one juction on the last stage of the morning loop.

Pierre-Louis Loubet, Gus Greensmith and Andreas Mikkelsen complete the top ten.

Greeensmith lost his eighth position over Loubet after the first one stopped to change a front wheel in Stage 12 as the puncture happened after a landing.

Craig Breen and Oliver Solberg are outside the top ten.

Solberg had to stop in Stage 12 as there was some grass in the radiator and had to clean it due to the fact that the engine temperature was really high. He dropped more than one minute with this incident.
