Fri 17:28 - Monte after SS8

1.Ogier 2h07m15.4s, 2.Tänak +14.9s, 3.Sordo +59.7s, 4.Lappi +1m09.9s, 5.Latvala +1m10.1s.




Fri 17:30 - Monte WRC2 after SS8

1.Kopecky 2h15m27.2s, 2.De Mevius +8m28.7s, 3.Abbring +8m59.5, 4.Sciessere +12m35.8s.




Fri 17:25 - SS8: WRC 2 De Mevius

"Happy to be at the end. The hardest rally I have done."




Fri 17:24 - SS8: WRC 2 Abbring

"Apart from the middle stage we enjoyed a good pace. We know where we have to be with the tyres now and have found a lovely rhythm."




Fri 17:22 - SS8: WRC 2 Kopecky

Jan clears the stage with a comfortable lead in WRC 2. "It was disappointing to see the other guys hit problems today. It was a good battle with Eric [Camilli] but I've been in this sport a long time and sometimes this is rallying. Since I saw Eric in trouble I've been taking it easier - a little more careful."



Fri 17:15 - SS8: Bouffier

"Still difficult, but a couple of good times times. Not that bad, safe, no mistakes. Now I need a good rest ahead of tomorrow."



Fri 17:14 - SS8: Lappi

Lappi slower than Sordo by 1.1sec, so Dani stays third and Esapekka ends the day fourth, 10.2sec adrift. "It's nice to see that even with the same speed I can fight for some positions. Okay, maybe I'm getting there. I need to do a good step if I want to fight for victories in the future but for now I'm quite pleased with the performance."



Fri 17:07 - SS8: Sordo

Sixth fastest so far. Will it be third overnight for Dani? Lappi was just 9.1sec behind after the previous stage. "Much better grip than the previous stage but still difficult."




Fri 17:05 - SS8: Evans

Fourth quickest here. "An encouraging day, building confidence."




Fri 17:04 - SS8: Latvala

Second quickest on stage so far and Latvala rounds off the day in fifth.



Fri 17:03 - SS8: Tanak

8.1sec slower than Neuville but second overnight and fizzing with excitement. "The car feels perfect, it's great to be here in this position and fighting."




Fri 17:01 - SS8: Neuville

12.5sec quicker than Ogier as he fights to regain time lost on Thursday. "The car was working really nicely, I tried to use all the road, keep it smooth and clean. Where can I finish? I don't know. In some stages we have caught 30 sec so anything is possible."



Fri 16:55 - SS8: Ogier

He's through in 8m48.7s, and that's the day done for Seb. "It's been difficult for sure, but we are here and still in the leading position. Without the spin I would be a minute in the lead, but to be leading I have to be happy. Tomorrow I will need to be good."




Fri 16:48 - SS8: Conditions

A generally damp road but some drying patches. A few spots of rain on the windscreen. More rain near the stage end.




Fri 16:45 - SS8: LIVE

And Seb is underway




Fri 16:44 - SS8: Standby

Today's final stage. Ogier is on the start line. The rain has stopped.




Fri 16:13 - Monte WRC2 after SS7

1.Kopecky 2h05m58.2s, 2.De Mevius +7m58.5s, 3.Abbring +9m00.0, 4.Sciessere +11m50.1s. Sciessere slips to fou
