Ogier heads Sordo in breathless Monza battle

Sébastien Ogier topped the ACI Rally Monza leaderboard after a furious fight with Dani Sordo in the Italian Alps on Saturday morning. Ogier immediately grabbed the lead in the 25.06km Selvino special stage with a stunning fastest time. Sordo retaliated with victory in the 11.09km Gerosa to reclaim the advantage as Ogier was too cautious. The feeling on the second stage was the same, but on the last one, I lost a little bit. Fastest time in the final stage provided much-needed breathing space as he returned to mid-leg service in Monza with an 8.2sec advantage over the Estonian. He lost more valuable seconds after sliding into a bank at a final stage hairpin.
