In a thrilling battle for the ace place, Ford boys were at home! Initial two stages it was the veteran Ford driver, Petter Solberg who was upfront on the charts. On the third stage, he dropped to third overall and Latvala who was close behind and sliced nearly 5 seconds ahead of the second fastest, only guy to make it under 16m mark, which he kept on increasing the gap with remaining stages under wraps down the others.

It was a healthy 12.1s up the second placed Petter and nearly 21seconds the championship leader. ‘But you never know‘, with two more days and 11 more stages, ‘Anything can happen‘!
