Citroen number one driver Sebastien Loeb continues to lead Rallye Deutschland following SS13 this afternoon.
Loeb, who finished the morning loop with a 23 second lead, was second quickest in SS11, SS12 and SS13, to maintain his cushion over team-mate, Dani Sordo. In fact, he actually extended it, although only by 0.1 seconds.
"No problems, no mistakes - everything is okay," Loeb said. "But there are still a lot of kilometres ahead of us."
Sordo, who was fastest in SS12 and SS13, added: "We are not taking any risks. We just want to keep this result."
Sebastien Ogier meanwhile is still on course for the final spot on the podium, and he has extended the gap to Jari-Matti Latvala from 8.9 seconds to 13.7.
Further down the order, Francois Duval is up to fifth, after Mikko Hirvonen was forced to retire for the day in Freisen / Westrich. Early reports suggest he had transmission problems. It is not yet known if the Finn will re-start on Sunday under the SupeRally format.
Petter Solberg, who took his second stage win of the event in SS11, completes the top six in his privately entered Citroen C4 WRC followed by F1 2007 world champion, Kimi Raikkonen and Britain's Matthew Wilson. Wilson lost out to the 'ice-man' in the first stage this afternoon and is now 10.1 seconds off P7 in his Stobart Ford Focus RS WRC car.
The second leg now concludes with another run through the monster 48 kilometre Panzerplatte test.
