The New Zealand driver Hayden Paddon has dropped to 9th at the end of the second day of the Rally of Germany.
Paddon and his co-driver John Kennard were eighth after day one but their inexperience on tarmac and a turbo-related technical issue slowed the pair on all stages of the event's longest day.
"Unfortunately we've had some small issues with the turbo which cost us a bit of power and unfortunately cost us a lot of time.
"Nevertheless we've been able to hold our position in the top ten. The boys will able to fix the problem tonight and we'll come out tomorrow to try and show a lot more competitive times which I know we can do," said Paddon.
Paddon's team-mates Dani Sordo and Thierry Neuville hold fourth and fifth places respectively.
Three minutes ahead of Paddon is the Frenchman Sebastien Ogier who leads the rally overall.
