Puncture on SS15 costs Sebastien Ogier around 3 minutes and drops the Citroen Junior Team man from first to fifth.

Citroen Junior Team's Sebastien Ogier has lost the lead on the Rally of Turkey after he suffered a puncture in the second test this afternoon.

The incident occurred towards the end of the repeat-run through the 12.98 kilometre Ulupelit test, SS15, when one of his front tyres exploded. He had to stop and change the wheel, something that cost him around 3 minutes.

Ogier now drops down to fifth, with Sebastien Loeb moving up into P1, ahead of Petter Solberg, Mikko Hirvonen and Dani Sordo.
