Five-fold world champion Sébastien Ogier (Ford Fiesta WRC) after the end of the 3rd day in the rally of Mexico to the pipe. The Frenchman disbanded Saturday afternoon, all of his devils and took the lead over Sébastien Loeb (Citroën C3 WRC) after he had a puncture. Ogier has a comfortable lead of 35.9 seconds on the second place, Kris Meeke (Citroen C3 WRC). Dani Sordo (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) is third. Thierry Neuville (Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) is on the sixth place.

With 3 rides to ride on Sunday seem like the dice thrown in the rally of Mexico. Sébastien Ogier began Saturday afternoon in a great offensive, was full in the attack and wanted to the risks. In the 14th stage he beat the competition by KO, he jumped from the 3rd to the 1st place and depth afterwards, with the 4 fastest times in a row, but his lead further.

Kris Meeke is the only one that still more or less in the vicinity of the Ogier, but still, to win made Meeke too many errors. With only 46 km klassementsrit to drive must Meeke 1 second per mile to make that for themselves to follow as a winner in Mexico. That seems an almost impossible task.

The Spaniard Dani Sordo drove, just like Sébastien Loeb, a leak in the 14th ride. Possible got both drivers even the same stone. Loeb drove his band totally shredded and had the mid-ride stop to change his wheel. The Frenchman, who lost 2:08. Sordo felt the band slowly deflate and drove through to the finish. On arrival was the linkervoorband totally destroyed but Sordo limited the time to 30 seconds.

Thierry Neuville was on the 3rd day once again as first on to the track. Since this year there is a curtailments which the participants in the rally 2 does not start if the first job to do. Of all the top riders stood Neuville the worst classified so he again had to wipe it. Neuville came off ok in the beginning of the 14th stage when his Hyundai him surprised, the rear broke out and the road became. In the 16th ride reed Neuville also leak. The Belgian quit the 3rd race in 6th position. Without the bad luck of the other riders, he is unable to progress more and he loses more than likely the leadership in the standings of the world cup.

Sébastien Ogier seems to be on the way to the double in Mexico: the rally win and leader in the world CHAMPIONSHIP standings. The rally of Mexico ends Sunday evening around 20: 30 Belgian time.
