Loeb all but has Monte win in bag.

Of the rest, local ace, Jean-Marie Couq is just outside the points in ninth, in his Peugeot 307, 40 seconds off Kopecky, while Manfred Stohl completes the top ten in his OMV Kronos-run Citroen Xsara WRC, despite having had brake problems on leg 1 and on the first loop on Saturday. Stohl gained a place in the final 'proper' test, after Jari-Matti Latvala made a mistake and hit a wall. The Finn, who has lead the way for the Stobart team, dropped from ninth to eleventh and while he completed the stage he will not be able to continue after damaging the roll cage. As a result Gareth MacHale and Matthew Wilson move up to 11th and 12th respectively.

Frederic Romeyer and Henning Solberg complete the top 14, the latter admitting that he may need to do a bit of circuit racing to get to grips with driving on tarmac. Henning has very limited experience on asphalt and has been disappointing throughout.

In the Group N class, Olivier Burri, who has lead from start to almost-finish, lies 17th overall, while Martin Prokop, who heads the A6 class, is one place further down the leaderboard.

The 2007 Rallye Automobile Monte Carlo now concludes on Sunday, with the 2.80 kilometre Monaco Circuit super special stage, which starts at 09.00 hours local time.
