Rallying: Title-chasing Ogier takes Finland lead

World championship leader Sebastien Ogier took charge of the Rally of Finland on Friday driving his Volkswagen to a 38-second lead over Belgian Thierry Neuville in a Ford.

Neuville had led overnight but, two stages from the end of the day, his Focus suffered a puncture.

He clung on to second place and has a 39-second advantage over Norway's Mads Ostberg, also in a Ford.
