Sun 10:52 - Up next: Regroup


Crews gathering at Torsby for a regroup before the live TV Power Stage.



Sun 10:50 - SS18: Junior update


Extremely tight at the top. Bergkvist is 3.4sec quicker than leader Radstrom here and Radstrom's advantage for the Power Stage is slashed to just 6.1sec. Bergkvist promises a maximum attack push on the final stage. Tannert is well cushioned in third.




Sweden WRC2 after SS18


1.Katsuta 2h55m02.7s, 2.Tidemand +10.1s, 3.Veiby +27.8s, 4.Adielsson +1m50.0s, 5.Tuohino +2m23.6s




Sun 10:37 - SS18: WRC 2 Veiby



17.7sec behind Tidemand in the standings, Veiby says the battle is over. "I think so. A clean run through with no mistakes. I'm in a position where I'm unable to fight. That's it."



Sun 10:34 - SS18: WRC 2 Tidemand

Three-tenths slower than Katsuta here, and Pontus accepts that a 10.1sec deficit is too much to close on the Power Stage. "It will be like this," he says. "I really was trying, not so much more to do."




Sun 10:31 - SS18: WRC 2 Katsuta


Just one stage separating him from a momentous maiden win in WRC 2. "This stage we pushed very hard. We had a half spin in a slow section, so not so much time lost. Otherwise very good."




Sun 10:28 - SS18: Meeke


Sixth fastest. Any chance of points on the Power Stage? "Absolutely no way. We're first on the road."




Sun 10:27 - SS18: Neuville


Second quickest here and Neuville's rally lead before the Power Stage is up to 16.2sec. Will he be pushing to take bonus points on the Power Stage? "Definitely not. No, no, no. We have increased the gap now and can go carefully."




Sun 10:25 - SS18: Breen


"Sorry if you're fed up hearing this, but it's so much fun, it's just a pleasure. We've been fighting for a year to get back in this rhythm. One more stage to come, I could do another three or four days of this."



Sun 10:23 - SS18: Mikkelsen


6.4sec slower than Lappi. "I thought I had a puncture on the front left. The car wouldn't turn well to the right. It never got worse, so I drove normally again, but it cost us some time."



Sun 10:21 - SS18: Paddon

4.5sec slower than Lappi and Paddon's advantage heading to the Power Stage is 2.9sec. "It felt better, a step in the right direction. We'll see. The Toyotas are fast on this stage. We have a little gap for the last stage, we'll certainly try to defend it."




Sun 10:19 - SS18: Ostberg


Third quickest. "The car is similar to earlier, not perfect but it feels better when the grip is increasing. That did help a little bit here. Not perfect but okay, I was pushing."




Sun 10:17 - SS18: Lappi

Quickest by 10.7sec as he chases down Paddon. His rival 2.6sec slower at the 16km split. "Okay, more tricky conditions now, I just tried to be very clean. I thought I was careful, maybe too careful?"




Sun 10:15 - SS18: Latvala


A 197kph sprint to the finish and Latvala bags fastest time so far. "The feeling is there, I'm happy now. More difficult on the second pass than the first. When you break the ice, the snow on the side makes it more slippery."




Sun 10:12 - SS18: Suninen


1.1sec slower than Tanak. "Better now, I was using the car more, getting used to the new set-ups. Small problems with the wipers, but okay."




Sun 10:11 - SS18: Tanak


Quickest so far. "We will try on the Power Stage. We tried to be extremely careful here to keep a good set of tyres. Let's see what's possible."




Sun 10:09 - SS18: Ogier


"We hope the conditions on the Power Stage will be okay. That is the only target for us now."




Sun 10:07 - SS18: Evans


"It will be very difficult to salvage any points from the Power Stage in this road position. We'll try. Never say never."




Sun 10:05 - SS18: Solberg


"Lots of things in the road. A lot slower than before, but that's how it is being first on the road."
