SS2: Kris Meeke hits back!

29/03/2019

After being delayed by a slight off and a puncture in SS1, Kris Meeke stunned his rivals in this stage. The Northern Irishman is always quick in Corsica and he leads his team-mate Ott Tänak. The latter lost first place in this stage, which sprang fewer upsets than the previous one. Elfyn Evans and Dani Sordo complete the top 3.

“I’m feeling a bit more comfortable, but my time’s pretty bad. There’s no way I can go quicker.”

“It’s pretty dirty in places although it’s not too bad.”
