Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson wraps up Saturday with two stage wins.

Day 2 is finished in France, and Petter and Chris has climbed in the overall classification and is now in third place. They had an amazing afternoon, and ended with being the fastest car on the two last stages of the day.

- Now I'm really happy, says Petter Solberg. - We didn't get the chance to test on muddy conditions before the rally, so we have struggled a bit to find the pace. But this afternoon we made some changes, and there it was! Right on the pace, and two stage wins. Feels so good! I really want to catch up with Sordo tomorrow, and will do whatever I can for it to happen.

Sebastien Loeb is still leading Rallye de France, and Dani Sordo is second. Both Sebastien Ogier and Kimi Raikkonen got into trouble on stage 15 and had to retire. Solbergs guest driver, Yvan Muller, hit something with a wheel on the third stage of the day and had to stop on the stage to fix it. Luckily he made it through the next stage and back to service, and have finished the day. Yvan is 51 minutes behind the leader.

4 more stages to go here in France tomorrow, first car will be on the first stage at 0823.
