Super Solberg shows way in Sardinia.

In the Junior WRC category Urmo Aava heads Suzuki team-mate, Per-Gunnar Andersson, by 13.3 seconds, with Nicolas Bernardi third in his Renault Clio, and championship leader, Guy Wilks fourth.

In total 50 competitors completed today's tests, 17 retiring. The two major retirements were Toni Gardemeister and Mikko Hirvonen, the former going out on SS1, after going off the road in his Skoda Fabia, while the latter retired following SS3 with gearbox problems.

The bulk of the second leg tomorrow is located further to the west on the slopes of Monte Lerno. After leaving Porto Cervo at 06.30, drivers face two identical loops of three speed tests, including two passes over the 34.21km Tandalo stage, the longest of the event. The two loops are split by a short lunchtime test further north, which will be broadcast on live television.

The seven stages cover 147.99km and drivers return to Porto Cervo at 20.00 for the final overnight halt.
