Brief commentary:

This leg of the Rally was notable for Ari Vatanen writing of his Citroen in spectacular fashion. Fontenay was the winner of this leg with Lartigue driving defensively, coming in 5th.

Stephane Peterhansel won this stage by 6 minutes 17 seconds from Arcarons and increased his lead to 13 minutes 10 seconds with only one leg remaining.
