Day three: 26.12 miles; 4 stages
Weather: Sunny 14-24 celsius -Latvala gives it a go on the first stage, but Neuville’s more than a match. From then on, J-ML accepts that his day’s done. -Ogier caught out on the opener with an overshoot – clearly his eyes are on the threepointer at the powerstage. Predictably, he bags all the extras to help him extend his lead at the top of the table for the sixth event in succession. -Camilli moves past Solberg for sixth place, ending his event on a high. The Norwegian struggles with a rear suspension issue.
A fine performance from Mikkelsen, right up until a rock collided with right-front. Became the first to use powerstage tactics, slowing to make sure he didn’t score any points to run behind Sordo next time out.
