Rally Sweden - 3rd Day - 1st Loop: Breen remains out in front as Evans loses one place

At the end of the morning loop of Saturday, Craig Breen remains on top of Rally Sweden classification with Ott Tanak and Esapekka Lappi following him.

Craig Breen is still the leader of Rally Sweden and increased his gap over the second Ott Tanak after SS10 as he set the fastest time there.

The Estonian driver remains in second place overall and he could do nothing more to attack for the lead. His margin from the Hyundai driver is at three seconds at the end of Saturday morning like it was at the end of Friday afternoon.

Esapekka Lappi completes the top three and did not feel comfortable with his i20N in the morning after the changes his mechanics did last night.

Kalle Rovanpera stole the fourth place from his teammate Elfyn Evans at the end of Stage 10 with their gap being at 5,1 seconds. The reigning WRC Champion was not comfortable with his Yaris as his mechanics changed something on the set-up of the suspension. Moreover, he reported understeer in Stage 10, but he managed to set the benchmark in Stage 11.

Elfyn Evans dropped one place and is now fifth overall as he was losing time in comparison with his rivals. Moreover, it must be mentioned that he complained about the balance of his Yaris.

Thierry Neuville is still in sixth place at the end of Stage 11 being the fastest driver on the opening stage of the morning, while he will fight with Evans for the fifth position as their gap is at one second.

Pierre-Louis Loubet holds his seventh place overall and complained that he could not find grip to push.

Takamoto Katsuta restarted today under the regulations of Rally2 after his retirement in Stage 6 and was the driver who is opening the road today.
