Thierry Neuville wins in Argentina

Belgian driver Thierry Neuville has snatched his second rally victory in a row for Hyundai in Argentina with a last-gasp burst of speed.

Neuville started the final El Condor power stage 0.6 seconds adrift of Britain’s Elfyn Evans, but won by a fraction of a second to take overall victory and five bonus points.

Evans had led from the second stage in his D-Mack team Ford Fiesta, but suffered brake problems early in the day.

Estonian Ott Tanak came in third in the rally in Villa Carlos Paz, near Cordoba.

Reigning world champion Sebastien Ogier of France, who finished fourth, continues to lead the standings with 102 points after five rounds, ahead of Finnish rival Jari-Matti Latvala on 86 and Neuville on 84.

The next rally is in Portugal on from May 18 to 21.
