Have the Finn Mikko Hirvonen sealed the 2011 Rally Sweden with his three in a row on SS17-19? Only time will tell, but he has extended his lead three times when he was quickest on all stages so far this closing day. He is now 13,7 seconds ahead of Mads Østberg, who still is this years sensation when he holding on to his second spot, finishing second-third-second so far today.
Petter Solberg is still in third place just over half a minute behind Hirvonenm. In fourth we find Sebastien Ogier (39,2 behind) and closing the top five is Jari-Matti Latvala 51,6 seconds behind after some trouble on SS 17.
– We hit a snowbank and lost some pieces in the front of the car, Latvala said.
