Croatia Rally - 2nd Day -1st Loop: Neuville back on the top, late problems for Fourmaux

At the end of Saturday morning, Thierry Neuville retakes the lead of Croatia Rally with Elfyn Evans and Sebastien Ogier following him.

Thierry Neuville takes the lead of Croatia Rally again after the end of Stage 9 and set the fastest time in Stage 11 and 12.

Elfyn Evans is just 4,7 seconds behind the Belgian and their gap was only at eight tenths of a second after SS9. However, it must be mentioned that Evans and Neuville set an identical time in Stage 10.

Sebastien Ogier completes the 2-3 for Toyota and was the fastest driver in Stage 10, but he struggled with the suspension and the oversteer on the next one stage while he finished Stage 11 with a damaged front-right bumper.

Ott Tanak remains fourth overall and survived a near miss in Stage 10 when he went wide in a place and clipped a kerb.

Adrien Fourmaux is still in fifth place and took his first stage win of the weekend in SS9, but he reported engine issues in Stage 12 as his Puma suffered from misfire.

Takamoto Katsuta keeps his sixth position and said that he faced an issue with his Yaris before the start of Stage 11, but he did not clarify which was the exact issue. In addition to that, he had an overshoot on the final stage of the morning.

Andreas Mikkelsen remains in front of Gregoire Munster despite the fact that the Norwegian lost some seconds in Stage 12 when he went straight on in a junction.
