Hyundai's Dani Sordo has lost time on Rally Finland after going off and getting stuck in a ditch in SS15.

Sordo, who had been running sixth overall, only 5.9s behind team-mate, Thierry Neuville, made a mistake 5.2 km into the 13.84 km Mokkipera test 2, but was able to rejoin after help from some spectators. The Spaniard, however, lost over 5 minutes as a result, and now drops to 13th overall - more than 90 seconds off a place in the top-ten.

"We missed the line and went into a ditch," Sordo told the official WRC site after getting to the end of SS15. "We tried to drive out but ended up losing a lot of time."
