Ruthless Rovanperä pulls clear on Saturday morning

Kalle Rovanperä more than quadrupled his Vodafone Rally de Portugal lead on Saturday morning with a clean sweep of stage wins aboard a Toyota GR Yaris. “We have done a few good mornings [before now], but this was a really good one. The whole loop was good, and we will try to continue like this.”. Sordo didn’t just lose touch with the rally leader, he also came under increasing pressure from team-mate Esapekka Lappi and reached the service only 4.6sec clear of the Finn. Lappi claimed the final podium spot in the day’s first stage, demoting Thierry Neuville – who ended the loop just 0.9sec behind – in the process.
