Nasser Al-Attiyah is back in the lead of the Cyprus Rally after further problems for Martin Prokop, but Al-Attiyah only has a 7.9-second cushion over Roger Feghali with three stages to go.
Prokop had got his advantage over fellow Ford driver Al-Attiyah up to 23.2sec going into Foini, today's second stage, only to then suffer his second driveshaft breakage of the weekend, leaving him limping through the rest of the loop.
Al-Attiyah also lost some time on the stage, reportedly in Prokop's dust, and then had a spin as he struggled with worn tires on the following Galataria stage. That meant the new leader finds himself with Skoda driver Feghali right on his tail going into the final loop.
Prokop is still in third, just ahead of his Czech Ford teammate Jaromir Tarabus.
