WRC 2: Kubica leads at Saturday (...)

Robert Kubica maintained his unblemished record of stage victories at Rally de Espana by winning all three of Saturday morning’s tests to extend his WRC 2 lead to 1min 31.0sec over Elfyn Evans.

Kubica, who requires a top two finish in his Citroen DS3 RRC to secure the category title, is 10th overall.

Evans, driving a Ford Fiesta R5, holds a comfortable 1min 27.3sec advantage over the Skoda Fabia S2000 of Sepp Wiegand. The German broke a wheel rim in SS5 but escaped serious time loss.

Yazeed Al Rajhi remains fourth but Robert Barrable lost fifth when the Irishman broke a front driveshaft in his Fiesta R5 on the road section to SS6. He removed the component before tackling the stage in three-wheel drive.
