Sepp Wiegand's co-driver seems to be feeling better now after being treated by the paramedics. He is already in service park.
At least some good news.

I have just watched a picture of van Merksteijn's car after his crash (the car was quite wrinkled) and noticed that 4 out of 5 Citroëns have crashed this weekend, and the 5th one had to retire with a fire in the engine :blink:

The only Citroën still running is Ogier and because he was forced by the team to superrally

Latvala and Ostberg through SS22

Henning was keeping Meeke on hold during the first 4 splits of the stage, but something happened to him in the 5th one and has lost some time. Now, Meeke is only 1.8 seconds behind Henning, and the podium will be decided in the 4.36 Km long power stage.

Oh!
I was going to ask who had spun. I was listening Sutil talking about his future right at that moment and I didn't really knew what was going on.

Pity for Meeke but also nice for Henning, somehow I find Henning cute/funny
