WRC 2021 – 18th Rally Italia Sardegna – Ožie leads convincingly, the collapse of elite drivers

Only four drivers from the “premier class” are in the “Top 10”, they are far behind, at the macadam rally in Sardinia.

After yesterday’s excellent ride and winning the first two positions in the general classification, luck turned its back on Ot Tanaka and Dani Sord. First, the blow to the very big stone tore off a lot of things in the front part of the “Hyundai” suspension, Ot Tanaka (exam number 12), and then the excellent Dani Sordo, also the hopeful of the “Hyundai” (exam number 15), was left without a point.

Now everything is easier for the host Sebastien Ožie with “Toyota” and for his team rival Elfin Evans. Thierry Neuville is in the third position, but with a big gap… .so we dare to declare the experienced Frenchman and official world champion, 37-year-old Sebastien Ozie, the winner of the Sardinia Rally 2021.

It hasn’t happened for a long time that out of ten prime drivers, only four are in the “Top 10”, but it’s hard macadam and speeding without a bit of luck.

In the WRC 2 category, Hutunen and Ostberg lead the big battle, the difference is only 2.7 seconds, while in the WRC 3 class, Rosel leads Lepez.

4 more special stages are scheduled for Sunday.
