Ogier leads with just the Super Special to go...
Loeb and Sordo complete the provisional podium
Having fought off Sebastien Loeb’s challenge through the final gravel stage of Rally de Portugal, just 2km of tarmac stands between Sebastien Ogier and his maiden WRC victory.
Loeb was fastest through SS17 but was only 1.8sec quicker than his Junior team rival, which means Ogier takes a 7.7sec advantage into the head-to-head Algarve Super Special.
Dani Sordo holds the upper hand in the fight for the final podium place but Petter Solberg (+4.6sec) and Mikko Hirvonen (+8.4sec) are right behind and ready to pounce should he make a mistake.
