First four drivers in overall standings after SS13 on Rally Mexico were competing together in WRC seven years ago.

Loeb was of course champion in 2011 season when Ogier was the last season his teammate and finished on third place in championship standings. Sordo and Meeke weren’t driving whole season, but they were teammates in Mini WRC Team. All that four drivers are in 15.5 second timing gap, all others are already too much behind them.

Loeb (Citroen C3 WRC) is on the lead with 2.9 seconds ahead Sordo in Hyundai i20 WRC. Very strong today was Ogier (Ford Fiesta WRC) who is on third place overall, with the same overall time as Meeke (Citroen C3 WRC). Meeke made little mistake on SS13, but lost just 3.5 seconds.
Mikkelsen is already more than one minute behind leader and Neuville more than four minutes. Tidemand is now on seventh place overall with strong lead in WRC2 section ahead Greensmith (more than four minutes).

Five more stages is on schedule today.
