10.     POL L. PIENIAZEK     +9:22.3

Sat 10:35 - SS11: Greensmith

Gus has lost more time to his rivals in the WRC 2 standings after this stage, Pieniazek has pulled away by another 34.8secs to be more than one minute ahead now.

Sat 10:32 - SS11: Latvala

He can't claim another stage win on this one, 4.5sec off Evans' stage-winning time. "It is good, on this stage I took it a little more careful because there are loose stones. I hit one at one point but thankfully it doesn't do too much damage. After yesterday they are scaring us a bit more than usual."

Sat 10:30 - WRC standings after SS11

1. Neuville 2h 02m 06.2sec 2. Evans +12.7sec 3. Sordo +24.3sec 4. Suninen +41.4sec 5. Lappi +50.7sec

Sat 10:29 - SS11: Ogier

6.6sec down on his team-mate on SS11. He said he found it hard to motivate himself on the last stage, has that changed at all? "There is no objective, just go ahead until tomorrow. Not using it as a test as we have nothing to test." Hmm, not really.

Sat 10:27 - Paddon update

An update from Hyundai: Hayden had a good night and he'll be released from hospital soon.

Sat 10:26 - SS11: Mikkelsen

Not a great run for Andreas, 17.4sec off the pace for him at the end of the stage "Finding a rhythm is okay, we are driving and it is important to finish, but we can't do much because the engine is so down on power."

Sat 10:23 - SS11: Neuville

The Belgian is losing time through the splits to Evans, he's 5.9sec slower than Evans on the stage and his lead overall is cut to 12.7sec. "Everything is okay, I was a bit too careful on the tyres. It is quite abrasive and we need them for the next stage." Well let's see if that pays off for Thierry on Amarante.

Sat 10:19 - SS11: Evans

Elfyn Evans has really got into the groove on this test, he's 2.8sec faster than Sordo! What's his view on that one? "It was a good run in the stage actually, I enjoyed the driving and the car was all good. The smooth roads help, it was so difficult yesterday with the conditions we had."

Sat 10:17 - SS11: Sordo

Sordo seems to have found some of that good feeling again in the i20, he's 5.2sec up through the stage. "I think the suspension was really soft after the first loop so we made a few minor changes and it is getting better now."

Sat 10:14 - SS11: Suninen

Teemu strikes back on this one, he's 2.6sec quicker than Lappi on the stage and he pulls away slightly in the overall standings - 9.3sec between them now. "I'd have liked a bit more of a gap over Lappi. The surface was quite aggressive so there was a bit of movement."

Sat 10:11 - SS11: Lappi

Just like the last stage, Esapekka puts in a flying time. This time he's 2.9sec up, he adds: "For sure it will be tight with Teemu. I have a good feeling, good rhythm, I don't want to take any risks. There is more grip today than there was yesterday."

Sat 10:08 - SS11: Østberg

Three C3s through the stop control now as Mads takes 1.2sec out of Meeke with his fastest stage time so far. "It's feeling quite constant so that is good, we're just trying to enjoy it and learn the car - increasing speed as the day goes on. Kris is a very good benchmark and I'm glad to be faster than him."

Sat 10:04 - SS11: Meeke

That disadvantage Breen has by being handed sweeper duties has benefited his team-mate, Meeke is 9.7sec up on his team-mate. "Road position, the first three-four cars there is a lot of sweeping. These stages last year were horrible but today I have a nice feeling - that's important."

Sat 10:02 - SS11: Breen

Jumping onto SS11, Craig Breen has got the second stage of the day under his belt. How's he feeling after that? "It's a bit like Monte, opening the road. The car feels really nice and the rhythm is good, just a shame I'm first on the road really."
