At the end of the second day of Acropolis Rally, Sebastien Loeb takes back the lead from Pierre-Louis Loubet with Esapekka Lappi following them.

Sebastien Loeb takes back the lead he had at the end of Stage 4 while he lost some seconds in Stage 6, therefore dropped to third place after this stage. However, he set the fastest time in Stage 7 and is leading over Pierre-Louis Loubet for 1,7 seconds.

Loubet dropped second at the end of SS7 as he faced small power steering issues in Stage 7, but he was the fastest driver in SS6.

Thierry Neuville remains fourth overall and managed to reduce his gap from EP at 7,3 seconds.

Dani Sordo climbed into fifth place overall at the end of Friday and left Ott Tanak behind for 8,9 seconds.
