8:04 am on 29 May 2010

It's been a great day for Sebastien Ogier in Rally Portugal, the latest round of the World Rally Championship.

The young French Citroen Junior driver has been blindingly quick all day, and will go into day two with a 26.6 second lead over Spain's Dani Sordo.

Championship leader Sebastien Loeb is third, 44.8 seconds off the lead, Mikko Hirvonen in fourth, Petter Solberg fifth and Jari-Matti Latvala sixth.

There are six stages tomorrow and a further five on Sunday before the finish.
