ReportEdit

World Rally CarsEdit

The first leg saw defending world champion Sébastien Ogier, who was the road-cleaner in Sardinia, caught out after hitting a huge rock in the morning loop. Ogier's Citroën C3 sustained serious suspension damage, forcing him and co-driver Julien Ingrassia to retire from the stage.[13] Teemu Suninen took an early lead until a spin handed the lead to Jari-Matti Latvala, who rolled his Yaris in the afternoon loop. Things went from bad to worse as the Finn went off the road in the final stage of the leg. Thierry Neuville also hit trouble as his i20 slid nose-first into a ditch, with the Hyundai's radiator being pierced in the ordeal.[14] Eventually, Dani Sordo became the overnight leader.[15]

On day two, with a much better road position, Ott Tänak took over the rally — he dominated the day and won all six stages, turning a ten-second deficit to a twenty-five-second lead.[16] However, his teammate Kris Meeke had to change a punctured tyre in the final test, which dropped him down from fifth to eighth.

Things went against Tänak's favour in the power stage, however, when a late power steering failure deprived the Estonian of a third consecutive rally win, handing the victory to Sordo; his first rally win since the 2013 Rallye Deutschland.[17]

World Rally Championship-2 ProEdit

Mads Østberg was very likely to lead the category, but he lost almost eleven minutes adrift after hitting a stone in the opening stage, which meant Kalle Rovanperä became the leader. Gus Greensmith retired from the day due to plunging down a bank.[18] Although he restarted on Saturday, a suspension failure forced him to stop again.[19] Eventually, Rovanperä won the category as well as played a hat-trick.[6]

World Rally Championship-2Edit

Pierre-Louis Loubet enjoyed a toublefree day in the lead. The major retirements of the leg included Fabio Andolfi, who ripped a front wheel from his Fabia, and Ole Christian Veiby due to multiple issues.[18] On day two, Nikolay Gryazin retired from second when he hit a rock and ripped off his right-front wheel. Back to the front, Takamoto Katsuta surpassed Loubet in the final test of the leg.[19] However, his car was on fire on the final day and forced to retire from the rally, which handled the victory back to the former category leader Loubet.[6]
