Headlines - Makinen retires as he is unable to restart his engine. - Subarus are doing particularly well given their recent tarmac performances. - the wet weather is more likely to affect the results of the F2 cars. Tyrte choice is has been critical. - Magaud lies 12th overall after a spin on SS2 lost a lot of time. - Liatti spun and had a puncture on SS1 - further information has been difficult to obtain (partly due to a power failure at Rally HQ in Corsica!)
