The first day of Rally Spain is finished; Petter and Chris are 4th in the overall classification, 22 seconds behind Sebastien Loeb who is leading the rally. Sebastein Ogier is second and Jari Matti Latvala is third. 6 stages are done today, all with mixed surfaces; both tarmac and gravel.

- I'm quite happy with the day, except for that first stage were I lost so much time, says Petter Solberg. - I just couldn't find any grip at all, and no confidence. Petter and Chris lost 20 seconds on the first stage of the day. - I just had to do some changes after the stage, and the stage win on SS2 showed us I did the right thing. The rest of the day has been good, and I'm going for second place tomorrow!

Rally Spain continues with 6 more stages Saturday, all of them on tarmac. First car will be on the road from 0959.
