The first three klassementsritten of the day had a quiet race. Tänak returned this afternoon as the leader back to Torsby, with his track Suninen and Latvala. Neuville followed six seconds of the Est, Ogier to 14.4. The riders were concerned about how the rides in the afternoon would hove to. Their concern proved justified. The thin layer of snow had everywhere given way to a mix of gravel and mud, making the Rally of Sweden more way had a gravelrally instead of a sneeuwrally.
Neuville as if they were in the wrong. The Belgian hit in FP5 to two times a sneeuwmuur and lost precious time. In the subsequent drive went six-times world champion Sébastien Ogier in the wrong, he parked his Citroen C3 WRC on top of a sneeuwmuur. On the site of the crash were almost no spectators present to Ogiers Car from the snow pushing, so the Frenchman had to give up. In the last ride of the day went to Jari-Matti Latvala (Toyota Yaris WRC) also in the error. The most experienced rally driver, who in Sweden are 197ste rally driving, collided on a sneeuwmuur and lost a lot of time. Latvala was for the crash on the second place.
Suninen was this morning in the good rhythm and pulled that line this afternoon. He was the fastest in FP6 and took the lead. A strong performance of the Fin, at the beginning of this month his 25th birthday. With the eye on the world cup does Tänak is a good thing. The Est had no problems and is currently second. Saturday, there are eight klassementsritten driven. The Rally Sweden ends Sunday afternoon.
