Rally Australia (WRC): a three-man race

Andreas Mikkelsen (VW/Michelin), Sébastien Ogier (VW/Michelin) and Hayden Paddon (Hyundai/Michelin) are all in contention to win the last round of the 2016 FIA WRC?

 

After another day of searing heat in New South Wales, Mikkelsen, Ogier and Paddon were covered by just 12 seconds at the end of Leg 2, with 57.18 competitive kilometres still to come on Sunday.

The French driver chose the soft-compound Michelin LTX Force S4 for Saturday morning’s visit to Nambucca (50.80km) in an attempt to overcome the handicap of ‘road sweeping’ and he then succeeded in closing on his team-mate Mikkelsen in the afternoon.

Cheered on by fans from New Zealand, Paddon put in a strong day to ease clear of his team-mate Thierry Neuville and halve the gap to the front-running VW duo.

Mads Ostberg (Ford/Michelin) and Dani Sordo (Hyundai/Michelin) are battling hard for fifth spot and are split by just 1.4s ahead of the final day.
