A nightmare for the Frenchman as he drops 20.4sec and slips down to third. He arrives at stage end with a front-let puncture on
The rougher second pass starting to bite. Long way to go in this rally now. Hope all can continue the battle without more punctures or issues.
i think puncture was quite late affair, last couple of kms max. Gearbox seemed to be stuck on 3rd... Two more stages to go.
Ogier in trouble
He doesnt have 6th gear/ gearbox issues.
Edit - also a puncture
.. Has anyone mentioned that there's a car upside down on the inside of the sharp righthand corner close to the finish btw?
