Rally Estonia - 3rd Day - 2nd Loop: Rovanpera's dominance continues again

At the end of the afternoon loop of the third day, Kalle Rovanpera holds a commanding lead at Rally Estonia with Elfyn Evans and Ott Tanak following him.

Kalle Rovanpera is still the leader of Rally Estonia seting the fastest time in the first four stages of the afternoon loop of Saturday.

Elfyn Evans remains second overall, but his gap from his teammate is increased at seconds. Moreover, the Welshman driver had a rear damage on his Yaris at the end of Stage 15.

Ott Tanak completes the top three and he is far away from winning his home event.

Thierry Neuville is in fourth position overall and was being consistent throughout the afternoon.

Takamoto Katsuta completes the top five and felt his Yaris unstable in Stage 16.

Adrien Fourmaux lost ground in fighting with Katsuta for the fifth place as his target was to stay out of trouble and not to take any unnecessary risks. However, he set the fastest time in Stage 18.

Esapekka Lappi is seventh overall and was on two wheels in one tight corner of SS15.

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

Loubet slowed down his pace in Stage 15 as he thought that he suffered from a puncture at the beginning of this stage.

Greensmith almost went off the road in Stage 16 when a deep rut spat his Puma out of line.

Oliver Solberg and Craig Breen are still outside the top ten while the last one dropped more than two minutes in Stage 16 as he stopped to change a puncture.

Solberg had a massive moment in Stage 16 as there was a big rut and the car bottomed completely.
