Sat 10:02 - SS6: Folb and Franceschi


JWRC leaders are through the first split. Folb has clocked a 6m35.4s, but Franceschi is 3 seconds faster.


Sat 10:00 - SS6: JWRC


JWRC cars haven't quite got to the split yet, we'll bring you them as soon as they appear on timing!




Sat 09:55 - SS6: Andolfi


9m07.7s for Fabio Andolfi, 12.8sec slower than the leading time in WRC 2.



Sat 09:54 - SS6: Loubet


Pierre-Louis Loubet sets another good stage time after his struggles yesterday. A 9m01.1s is 6.2sec behind Veiby




Sat 09:51 - SS6: Veiby


Ole Christian Veiby has finished the stage with the fastest time so far for the WRC 2 field. An 8m54.9s is 0.6sec faster than Kopecky.



Sat 09:51 - SS6: Bonato


Bonato is also through, he's set a 9m01.8s to be 6.3sec slower than Kopecky. "Yeah it is better than yesterday, we found a solution to the brake problem from yesterday."



Sat 09:50 - SS6: Kopecky


Kopecky said he's pushing again now, happy with his time on that stage. He's logged an 8m55.5s in the Skoda Fabia R5.



Sat 09:49 - SS6: Loeb


Loeb is fastest again! 8m32.4s looks to have sealed his second stage win of the day as he goes 1sec faster than Tanak. Here's what he said at stage end: "Good time, after yesterday now is just to have fun in the car. It is frustrating but it is like this. I just try to enjoy it."



Sat 09:47 - SS6: Ogier


Ogier completes the stage at the same time as Lappi - 8m33.8s. 0.4sec slower than Tanak. "Yeah I tried to confirm the pacenotes, it is never super easy to go flat out on new stages. It is sacred driving here."



Sat 09:45 - SS6: Neuville


Neuville is in now, an 8m38.0s is 4.6sec slower than Tanak but has pulled away from Meeke in the overall standings. "To be honest there is not much more I can do, I was moving all over the place - struggling with the handling. This car is not made for conditions like these."



Sat 09:43 - SS6: Meeke


Kris Meeke through and he sets an 8m39.8s - 5.4sec slower than Tanak. Let's see what he says at the end of the stage: "I touched a kerb at the beginning and I thought I had a puncture, after that it wasn't so bad though." Not happy in the Citroen



Sat 09:40 - SS6: Tanak


But now Ott Tanak is the fastest man! An 8m33.4s is 0.4s faster than Lappi. "We had no issues, it was working okay." Short but sweet from Ott



Sat 09:39 - SS6: Lappi


Second stage in a row and Lappi has put in another great stage - an 8m33.8s is 4sec faster than Sordo. "To be honest it is 10 times better than yesterday, we did a lot of work. It is nice to see that it paid off."



Sat 09:37 - SS6: Evans


Evans comes through now with an 8m39.9s - the second fastest time for now, 2.1sec slower than Sordo. "I didn't have a great stage there to be honest. Just far too hesitant. That's just how it is." He's level in the overall standings with Dani Sordo now.



Sat 09:35 - SS6: Sordo


Sordo in now, 8m37.8s - 2.2sec faster than Latvala. "It is more normal road, wider, I try to push like hell but it is not easy - we don't have a good balance in the car."



Sat 09:33 - SS6: Evans


Evans is through the split with a 5m46.4s - the second fastest time here but 1.4sec slower than Sordo



Sat 09:32 - SS6: Latvala


Latvala comes through and is the fastest in SS6 - 8m40.0s. 2.3sec faster than Mikkelsen. That brief moment of concentration at the start has paid off for now. He wasn't happy with his rear brakes, complaints of them locking.



Sat 09:31 - SS6: Sordo


Dani Sordo is the fastest man through the split - 5m45.0s, 1.8sec faster than Latvala



Sat 09:30 - SS6: Mikkelsen


Mikkelsen is through now, an 8m42.3s puts him 0.4s faster than Bouffier. "I have understeer in the car, this stage is the worst for the car."



Sat 09:29 - SS6: Latvala


Latvala through the split two-thirds of the way into the stage. He's clocked a 5m46.8s to go 2sec faster than Mikkelsen



Sat 09:27 - SS6: Bouffier


The times have just updated and Bouffier is through to the end - an 8m42.7s for the Frenchman. He said: "Completely dry, very good." Nice summary from Bryan




Sat 09:02 - SS5: Tom Williams


Back on SS5, JWRC competitor Tom Williams has come through more than 4mins behind Franceschi, he had a puncture in the stage and had to stop and fit a new tyre.



Sat 08:58 - SS6


Bouffier is due to get the stage underway at 9.18 local time - or approximately 20 minutes from now - for the second of three stages this morning.




Sat 08:51 - SS6 stage guide


Let's take a look at what the crews will face on SS6: Désert des Agriates 1, 15.45km The Désert des Agriates is a barren, wild and beautiful wilderness and the only ‘official’ desert in Europe. It is crossed by just one road and this comprises the stage, which starts on the edge of the hamlet of Casta.

 

 

A wide, fast route traverses uninhabited ‘maquis’ 300m above sea level. After crossing the Vezzo pass, a quick downhill section brings crews to the finish.
