Halfway through the second full day of competition they had a lead of 10.9 seconds. The duo had started well on the first stage of Saturday afternoon until a pothole damaged the transmission, resulting in the abandonment. Neuville can immediately cross his fingers again about the drivers’ world title.Bron: BELGIANToday at 3:45 PMOn Saturday afternoon after the first special stage, Neuville said that the conditions were bad and that the second passage of KP Eleftherochori would be difficult. But the course was also difficult in the other stages after the first passage. When approaching a left-hand bend, there was a hole on the outside of the bend that Neuville could no longer avoid when braking. The impact on the right front wheel was too great and the transmission broke down. A little further on, Neuville pulled his car aside. End of match for the Belgian, who won this match last year.© AFPEnd of match and perhaps also end of story as far as the world title is concerned. Neuville had to make up 36 points for the Rally of Greece, the tenth World Cup round, from Rovanperä, who after Neuville’s retirement moved up to second place in this tough Rally of Greece. Even if the Finn himself were to give up, the Belgian would still face a tough and almost impossible task. Neuville has already finished second five times and third three times in the World Cup final standings.After Neuville’s retirement, Sébastien Ogier (Toyota Yaris Rally1) takes the lead. Kalle Rovanperä (Toyota Yaris Rally1) follows second at 12.6 seconds. Dani Sordo (Hyundai i20 N Rally1) is already in third place with a gap of 1:48:2.The riders still have two classification stages left on Saturday afternoon. The Rally of Greece ends on Sunday afternoon.
