Jari-Matti Latvala picked up right where he left off before midday service, on top. The Stobart driver took another stage win, his ninth of the rally to move to within eighteen seconds of Mads Ostberg for 10th overall. Gronholm finished second on stage, 1.4 seconds behind Latvala and remains in the same position in the overall classifications. Petter Solberg rebounded from a disappointing SS15 to a third on SS16, 1.6 seconds behind Gronholm. The Subaru driver now has a 21.7 second lead over Citroen's Dani Sordo with one stage left to compete
Mikko Hirvonen was fourth on stage, a further 0.7 seconds back, but is still well in control of the rally overall. Fifth went to Dani Sordo, who was 3.7 seconds behind Hirvonen and 0.8 seconds ahead of Sebastien Loeb. Henning Solberg took seventh, 4.7 seconds behind Loeb. Ostberg was eighth on the stage, 5.1 seconds behind Solberg, but 17.8 seconds off the pace of Latvala. It will be really close to see if Latvala can overtake for the final top 10 position on the final stage of the season.
