Rally Poland - 3rd Day - 2nd Loop: Evans's puncture breaks Toyota's 1-2, Hyundai retired Tanak's car

At the end of Saturday afternoon, Kalle Rovanpera remains the leader of Rally Poland with Andreas Mikkelsen and Elfyn Evans following him.

Kalle Rovanpera still tops the overall classification at Rally Poland and managed to be the fastest driver in all stages this evening.

Andreas Mikkelsen moved ahead of Elfyn Evans at the end of Stage 13 and was behind the rally leader for 2,8 seconds after SS13. The Norwegian driver is the top Hyundai driver currently and was beaten by Rovanpera for 0,1 seconds in SS13.

Elfyn Evans does the 1-3 for Toyota and slipped behind Mikkelsen in Stage 13 as he lost 8,9 seconds due to the fact that he suffered from rear right puncture.

Adrien Fourmaux is still in fourth place overall and managed to remain ahead of the following drivers on the classification.

Martins Sesks denied from Thierry Neuville to steal his fifth place as their gap is at one tenth of a second at the end of Saturday. However, he missed a junction in Stage 13 and gave the opportunity to Neuville to get closer as their margin was decreased from 15,8 to 8,7 seconds.

The championship leader was not able to catch Sesks at the end of Stage 15 as their gap was at 2,4 seconds after the end of SS14. He took advantage over Sesks's mistake in Stage 13 to decrease further their gap and tried very hard to move up to fifth in order to have a better road position for Sunday.

Gregoire Munster follows his teammate on the classification and is now seventh overall while he did many mistakes in SS13 as he hit a bank and missed a lot of exits.

Takamoto Katsuta stands in the bottom of the classification and dropped many seconds in Stage 14 where he had two overshoots and the left rear tyre was off the rim.

Hyundai Motorsport decided to withdraw Ott Tanak's and Martin Jarveoja's car before the start of Stage 13 in order to focus on SuperSunday.
