  • Ce Rally of Central Europe almost took a completely different turn. Comfortably installed in the lead with more than 30 seconds in advance, Kalle Rovanperä scared himself in this SS10. Trapped while braking on a wet area, the Finn sped straight ahead and narrowly avoided contact with the trees on the side of the road.
  • “Simple” fear for the reigning world champion who still conceded 24“7 on Thierry Neuville, author of the scratch in this SS10 ahead of Elfyn Evans, who he beat by 3.
  • In the general classification, Kalle Rovanperä's mishaps resulted in Thierry Neuville returning to 10 seconds even though he was more than 9 seconds behind before the start of the special. However, the rally leader was not very worried, maintaining his usual relaxed attitude and assuring that it was a small error. However, be careful not to commit it a second time. Now, it wouldn't be surprising to see him attack a little more in SS35, the last before the lunch break.
