Wales Rally GB lived up to its reputation as one of the toughest events on the WRC calendar as Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia negotiated the unpredictable Welsh weather and muddy conditions to finish third overall. Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm made it to the end of the rally, having been forced to rejoin under Rally 2 rules, gathering considerable experience in the process.

Determined to keep challenging for victory after spending yesterday’s opening leg among the frontrunners, Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia unfortunately dropped a few seconds today in a breathtaking battle at the front. They still ended the day third overall, just 17.3s behind the leaders and 6.3s off second place. Back in action today, Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm focused on racking up the miles in their C3 WRC in the truly unique grip conditions you get at this round.

Consistently among the frontrunners throughout today’s opening leg, Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia ended day one in second position, just 3.4s behind the leaders. Considerably less experienced at this tough, unusual round than their team-mates, Esapekka Lappi and Janne Ferm were unfortunately caught out by one of the many tricky sections, despite having adopted a steady approach. They will nonetheless rejoin the action tomorrow under Rally 2 rules to get as many miles in the car as possible.
