Sebastien Ogier will take a 5.5-second lead over Dani Sordo into day
two of the Rally of Turkey, but Mikko Hirvonen is looming close behind
in third.

Citroen Junior driver Ogier gradually edged away from the field
today, and increased his gap over Sordo (Citroen) by 3s on this
evening’s superspecial, where Ogier was second only to Citroen team
leader Sebastien Loeb.

The usual frontrunners have been biding their time on leg one, keen
to avoid running first on the dusty roads tomorrow. Hirvonen is arguably
in the strongest position as he sits third, 12s down on Ogier, while
Loeb is fifth behind Petter Solberg, and 27.5s adrift of the lead. He
also has Ford number two Jari-Matti Latvala just 2.6s behind him.

Ogier’s team-mate Kimi Raikkonen was fifth-fastest on the Istanbul
superspecial as he completed what has been comfortably his best day in
the World Rally Championship so far. He is currently eighth, 7.7s behind
Munchi’s Ford’s Federico Villagra, and only 1m50s away from the lead.
Matthew Wilson (Stobart Ford) trails Raikkonen by 14s.
