Sebastien Loeb one stage from victory
Magnificent Rallye Monte Carlo’s fourth leg ended with second run over Lantosque – Luceram stage. Petter Solberg had another flier and further reduced gap behind Dani Sordo, but with only power stage remaining Norwegian will probably run out of kilometers in his pursuit of second place.
Atmosphere in and around Col de Turini is fantastic and drivers are having as much fun as the spectators. Even Seb Loeb showed some emotion at the stage end and Francois Delecour said he’s ready to go again!

“Atmosphere is fantastic, it’s dry and we can go very fast, there were fires everywhere, fans enjoying themselves. We are really enjoying this rally”, Sebastien Loeb.
“I felt a bit better on this stage, we pushed really hard and Petter will have to try very hard if he wants to catch us. He is very quick but I think we secured our place. Everyone at Mini did great job to get us here”, Dani Sordo.
“Everything is great on this rally, we’re so pleased. Good race with Dani, season is looking very good for us”, Petter Solberg.
“I want to do one more run over these stages, atmosphere is fantastic. I’m ready to go again!”, Francois Delecour.
