Loeb in control at end of day two.

In the Junior World Rally championship category, ten runners remain - roughly half the field - Renault Clio driver, Nicolas Bernardi first, 24.2 seconds up on Suzuki's Urmo Aava, while Alessandro Broccoli completes the top three.

Brit Kris Meeke is fourth in his Opel Corsa. Yesterday's leader, Kosti Katajamaki, went out in SS11.

The final leg tomorrow [Sunday] is again based around a central service park next to the swimming pool complex on Monaco's Grand Prix circuit. After leaving Monaco at 07.30, drivers face two loops of two stages before returning to the Principality for the finish at the palace at 14.30. The first test of each loop contains the mythical Col de Turini, one of the most celebrated landmarks in the entire championship. Thousands of fans, many of whom will camp out overnight, will generate a noisy and colourful atmosphere at the top of the col as the cars begin their descent towards the stage finish. Drivers face 104.40km of competition in total.
