Sat 10:00 - SS10: Tidemand

Pontus Tidemand is the fastest man on stage in WRC 2 now, he's 4.5sec faster than Lefebvre and is just 19.3sec behind Greensmith in the overall standings

Sat 09:56 - SS10: Lefebvre

And now the C3 R5 driver claims the class lead! He finishes 18.8sec ahead of the Pole and he takes class lead by 18.3sec

Sat 09:55 - SS10: Greensmith

Greensmith's issues early in the stage have cost him the lead of WRC 2 as Lukasz Pieniazek is 1m 01.9sec up on the Brit. Pieniazek takes the lead of the class by 27.6sec as it stands, but Stéphane Lefebvre could also gain a position as well.

Sat 09:51 - SS10: Latvala

Jari-Matti logs the fastest time! He's 2.4sec faster than Neuville on this stage, oh what could have been if he hadn't had his issues yesterday. "Very pleased with things, here today I can confirm the car is very good. We had to change some things because of the suspension damage yesterday but the car is good."

Sat 09:48 - SS10: Ogier

The championship leader is at stop control now, he finished that stage 2.3sec down - the fourth fastest time for him. "There is no target unfortunately, it is a day where it is difficult for motivation."

Sat 09:45 - SS10: Greensmith

Our WRC 2 leader had briefly stopped at the 3km but he's going again.

Sat 09:45 - SS10: Mikkelsen

Andreas is back in the game today after his engine issues forced him to stop on SS7. He is 6.8sec down at the end of this one. "Driving wise it is okay, but it is lacking in power. It's because of what happened yesterday, we had to make some changes to make it last."

Sat 09:42 - SS10: Neuville

Rally leader Thierry Neuville finishes SS10 now, and he's fastest! He's 0.2sec ahead of Lappi at the finish. "That's enough! It was a good stage, I tried to be careful in places as it is quite slippy in parts. It was ok."

Sat 09:39 - SS10: Evans

Elfyn is the next through to stop control and he's just 0.7sec slower, great time for him. He's happy with that: "It was quite slippery in places, the car was sliding quite a lot. I would say the grip is less than we had yesterday. Definitely hope I can stay ahead of Dani!" Well he's got a gap of 8.8sec over the Spaniard at the moment.

Sat 09:36 - SS10: Dani Sordo

The first Hyundai through the stage is Dani Sordo, he's 2.9sec down on Lappi as he breaks the timing beam at the flying finish. He tells Molly Pettit: "We don't have the same feeling in the car as we did yesterday, it was quite slippery out there."

Sat 09:33 - SS10: Suninen

Teemu can't match Lappi's pace, he's 4.7sec down as he slots into second fastest through the stage. "It wasn't the best run, I wasn't flat out pushing. I need to be on the limit to get the best times."

Sat 09:30 - SS10: Lappi

Blimey Esapekka! He's 5.8sec up on the Norwegian after a great run in the Yaris. "All the drivers in front of me are behind already so I don't need to focus on them so much. Not the perfect run, but ok I am satisfied."

Sat 09:27 - SS10: Østberg

Mads pulls into stop control and he's taken advantage of the road sweeping of his team-mates. He's 1.3sec up. "It was a good stage, a nice feeling in there. A good rhythm and I felt good."

Sat 09:24 - SS10: Meeke

Meeke is 11.1sec up as he crosses the finish. He says: "I'm enjoying my driving - even yesterday. I'm enjoying being the car, I remember this stage last year was horrific but now I can really get my teeth into it."

Sat 09:21 - SS10: Lappi

Esapekka Lappi is powering his way through the gravel roads here, he's 5.1sec up at the opening split - 1.2sec faster than Meeke

Sat 09:19 - SS10: Meeke

Kris is on for a good time, he's 4.9sec up on Breen at the 7.43km split.

Sat 09:07 - Let's take a look at SS10:

Vieira do Minho 1, 17.50km The stage has a little of everything – sandy sections contrast with a clay surface and wide roads are followed by narrower stretches. Some parts have been regraded with dust and dirt placed on top and compacted. It winds its way between big boulders in the opening few kilometres while the finish section brings challenging corners which the drivers will relish.
