Ogier takes narrow lead over Neuville



Five-time world champion Sebastien Ogier held a narrow lead of less than four seconds over championship leader Thierry Neuville at the Rally of Italy in Sardinia on Saturday.

With 49-kilometres of racing left on Sunday, Frenchman Ogier said "it's tight" as he looks to defend a 3.9sec lead over Belgian Neuville.

"It was a good afternoon, I just struggled to find the tempo in the second of the three specials," added M-Sport Ford driver Ogier.

He is aiming for a fourth rally victory in seven this year.

Finland's Jari-Matti Latvala in a Toyota was third at 48.9sec, however he could be hit with a penalty after needing to make some running repairs on the day's final special.

He leads compatriot and teammate Esapekka Lappi by just 5.3sec.
