Neuville fends off Breen in Saturday morning scrap

Thierry Neuville and Craig Breen resumed their thrilling duel for supremacy at Renties Ypres Rally Belgium on Saturday morning with Neuville on top after repelling a determined charge from the Irishman. “I’m happy but the afternoon will be as difficult, if not more difficult, with all the gravel on [the road],” explained Neuville. Breen was briefly hindered in Hollebeke when third-placed team-mate Ott Tänak stopped to change a front wheel puncture and pulled back onto the road just ahead of his colleague. Tänak’s delay, compounded by a faulty jack which slowed the tyre change, allowed Elfyn Evans into third in a Toyota Yaris.
