  2. 12h38. Neuville seizes power in morning session. After a very tough loop of three stages on Saturday morning in the Rally of Greece, Thierry Neuville has taken over the lead from Frenchman Sébastien Loeb, who had to retire after an electronic problem.  On the way to the finish of the opening stage, Loeb let his car bulge. The Greek gods were not in favor of Loeb, because further on he had to pull his car over due to an electrical problem. Give up Loeb, no fourth win in the Acropolis and no 81st overall win.  His title competitor Tänak moved up to second place at 18″6 from Neuville, who, like his teammate Tänak, rode a clear round, set the fastest time and took the lead from the unfortunate Loeb. Also in Saturday’s third stage, Neuville drove the fastest time, was 13.7 faster than Tänak, who dropped to third place and lost to Lappi.  .
