Day two: 98.06 miles; 6 stages

Motor Sport News - - Rally Argentina -

Weather: sunny 14 to 27 celsius Lat­vala crashes out of the sec­ond run of Los Gi­gantes. His 15-sec­ond lead comes to nought as Paddon moves to the front, to lead a WRC round for the first time since Sar­dinia last sea­son. Ogier is still sec­ond, but he’s com­plain­ing bit­terly about the clean­ing ef­fect on the first run through the stages and drops back from the lead fight in the Los Gi­gantes 20-miler. Sec­ond time through, he’s marginally hap­pier. But still wants to go home. A fight for fourth be­tween Mikkelsen and Sordo has be­come a bot­tom-step podium tus­sle on the fi­nal day. The Spa­niard closed the gap to his Nor­we­gian ri­val to 12s, but it’s at 17 go­ing into the fi­nal day. Ost­berg is a com­fort­able fifth overnight, al­most three min­utes down on Sordo, but four ahead of Li­gato – the Ar­gen­tinian feel­ing more and more at home in his Ph-sport-run Citroen DS 3 WRC. Com­fort­able and homely as he might be feel­ing, Li­gato will need to keep an eye in the mir­ror to­mor­row, with Neuville and Sol­berg just 4.8s down on him on Satur­day night. Thierry and Hen­ning are tied on time in sev­enth.
