WRC – Ogier and Volkswagen above the rest in Germany

Sébastien Ogier once again dominated the second day of Rally of Germany by winning most of the stages, the only opponent able to beat him on certain courses being his teammate Jari-Matti Latvala.

But the Finn was no longer able to follow the infernal pace of the double world champion and his delay on the Frenchman now stands at 34 seconds while the final day only includes four special stages.

Andreas Mikkelsen continues to secure its position in order to secure a hat-trick for Volkswagen, still seeking a first success on home soil in the discipline.

Dani sordo (Hyundai) still stands up to its teammate Thierry Neuville, without however managing to take cover, the Belgian still playing less than ten seconds behind the Spaniard.

Elfyn Evans (Ford) sees Mads ostberg (Citroën) come back just 3 seconds from 6th place, the Norwegian improving his performance throughout the event.

Ott Tänak (Ford) fell to eighth place following a road accident which cost him more than a minute. The Estonian is now ahead Hayden Paddon (Hyundai) who complained of turbo problems in the second pass of the special stages and who now only has a 9 second lead over Stéphane Lefebvre (Citroen).

Jan Kopecky (Fabia R5) continues to dominate the WRC2, now ahead of the French Eric Camilli (Fiesta R5) and Quentin Giordano (DS3 RRC). Craig Breen (208 T16 R5) lost several places following a puncture.

The final stage of the Rally Germany will be contested tomorrow from 7:07 a.m. and can be followed live on AUTOhebdo.fr. Click on this link to watch videos from the Rally Germany.
