Watch: Leader Lappi crashes out

Overnight leader Esapekka Lappi has crashed out 10.3km into Tempio Pausania, Saturday morning's first test, leaving the road strewn with parts of his Toyota GR Yaris.

The Finn's Yaris rebounded out of a heavy compression and clipped a rock on the rear right, bouncing the car into a rock on the opposite side of the road which ripped off the rear left wheel and suspension components.

It was Lappi's second start of the season and first rally on gravel in the hybrid-powered Yaris.

His crash leaves Hyundai Motorsport's Ott Tänak leading the rally by 21.5sec over MSport Ford's Craig Breen.
