Ott Tänak leads in Sardegna as Lappi crash and Neuville rolls- with video

04.06.2022: Ott Tänak moved into the lead of Rally Italia Sardegna after overnight leader Esapekka Lappi swiped a rock on Saturday morning’s opening test.


Ott Tänak moved into the lead of Rally Italia Sardegna after overnight leader Esapekka Lappi swiped a rock on Saturday morning’s opening test.



Lappi held a slender advantage over the Estonian driver following Friday’s punishing leg, and entered the first pass of Tempio Pausania 0.7sec in front.



However, the Finn’s Yaris got out of line following a heavy compression 10.4km into the first stage of the day and struck a rock to the right of the road.


The car then bounced into a rock on the other side, ripping off the rear left wheel and suspension components, before coming to rest in the undergrowth.



It’s the second successive rally from which Lappi has retired -  he also clipped a rock on his last outing at the Croatia Rally.




Watch: Leader Lappi crashes out







Overnight leader Esapekka Lappi has crashed out 10.3km into Tempio Pausania, Saturday morning's first test, leaving the road ...


“It’s really hard to take this one,” said Lappi. “I really felt that we were not taking any risks on the stage. I should have braked probably less in this corner because there was a stone on the ground which we caught on the [sump] guard and it threw us off the line. “I believe if I had braked less, then the front of the car would have been higher and we probably would have survived this.”

 

Lappi’s demise left Tänak comfortably in front, although there were no signs of easing from the Hyundai i20 N driver. He went on to win three out of four stages to end the loop with a 30.9sec lead.



Craig Breen was Tänak’s nearest challenger. The Irishman moved into the runners-up spot after M-Sport Ford colleague Pierre-Louis Loubet punctured a front right tyre on SS10, but faced constant pressure from third-placed Dani Sordo.
Breen kept a charging Sordo at bay



Sordo reduced the deficit to 1.5sec by the end of Tempio Pausania 1, but Breen responded with a convincing stage win at Erula - Tula and stretched his advantage to 10.3sec. Loubet was another 14.0sec down and took a cautious approach following his puncture.



Adrien Fourmaux was sixth in a third Puma, followed by Kalle Rovanperä, who overtook his Yaris team-mate Takamoto Katsuta when the Japanese hotshot stalled on SS11. Gus Greensmith and WRC2 runners Nikolay Gryazin and Jan Solans completed the leaderboard.




Hyundai’s Thierry Neuville had been targeting a climb up the leaderboard after ending Friday ninth following transmission woes. However, the Belgian’s luck ran out on the third stage when a rollover put him out for the day.
