Rally Spain - 2nd Day - 1st Loop: Ogier extends his lead as Greensmith crashes

At the end of the morning loop of the second day, Sebastien Ogier remains on top of Rally Spain overall classification with Kalle Rovanpera and Thierry Neuville following him.

Sebastien Ogier is still leading Rally Spain after the end of Saturday morning and extended his advantage over his two rivals as he set the fastest time in Stage 10.

Kalle Rovanpera remains second overall, but he was slower than Thierry Neuville in this morning loop, therefore their gap is now at 4,5 seconds.

The Belgian driver was the fastest driver in Stage 9 and did everything he could to get the maximum from his i20N.

Ott Tanak follows his teammate for 13 seconds and lost even more ground with the frontrunners as he did not feel comfortable with his car.

Dani Sordo completes the 3-4-5 for Hyundai Motorsport and was looking down to his dashboard at the end of Stage 10.

Elfyn Evans is sixth overall and his gap from the Spaniard is at 3 seconds.

Craig Breen is in seventh place and decreased his gap from Evans at the end of Stage 9, but he was slower than the Toyota driver in Stage 10.

Takamoto Katsuta, Adrien Fourmaux and Pierre-Louis Loubet complete the top ten.

Gus Greensmith was tenth overall at the end of Stage 10, but he had to retire in Stage 11 as he went off the road 19.1km into SS11 after hitting an armco barrier and losing the left rear wheel. He and Jonas Andersson are okay, but their car was blocking the road, therefore the stage was red flagged.

However, the organizers of Rally Spain confirmed that Stage 11 was cancelled and all the WRC drivers took a notional time for SS11.

Jourdan Serderidis and Loubet were the only WRC drivers who completed the Stage 11.
