Wales Rally GB: Sebastien Ogier leads under pressure from Ott Tanak
World Rally champion Sebastien Ogier retained his lead on day two of Wales Rally GB.
The Frenchman, who has won this event for the past three years, leads Ott Tanak by 33.8 seconds.
Ogier ended the action on Saturday with two stage victories, but Estonian Tanak won four.
The best-placed British driver is Kris Meeke who remains fifth. The Northern Irishman is over two minutes behind the leading driver.
"The second loop was more tricky and the grip was very low in some sections and we tried our best to keep some gap, and I am very happy that we managed to stay over 30 seconds ahead," Ogier told BBC Wales Sport.
"It is getting closer but we still have to finish, and the truth in rallying is that you need to drive all the stages before you can celebrate anything.
"I think we have done most of the job, but tomorrow morning we will still have to concentrate."
Thierry Neuville of Belgium also won a stage to maintain his challenge for second place in the World Rally Championship, with Andreas Mikkelsen winning the final Saturday stage at Cholmondeley Castle in Cheshire.
Welshman Osian Pryce and co-driver Dale Furniss are 19th overall.
The Machynlleth-based WRC2 driver slipped back one place during the fourth stage of the day at Pantperthog.
