Last year Rally Sweden sensation Mads Østberg and Jari-Matti Latvala shared the stage win on SS2 with a time of 14:13,0. The top five drivers were all inside of 5 seconds, pretty amazing over the long (27,07 km) first regular stage.
Third came Finn Mikko Hirvonen with Sebastien Loeb and Petter Solberg close behind. In the overall classification Østberg is in the lead 1,9 seconds ahead of Latvala and another 0,1 of a second ahead of Hirvonen.
