Robert Kubica moved back into the WRC 2 championship lead by take his fourth category win on the Rally of France.
The ex-Formula 1 star dominated in the class in France, leading by over three minutes for most of the rally once main rival Elfyn Evans had been delayed by an early puncture. The result means Kubica holds a seven-point lead over Abdulaziz Al-Kuwari in the standings.
Under WRC 2 regulations, drivers must pick seven events to contest, and both have now done six. Kubica is set to enter the next round in Spain at the end of October, and first or second there could put the championship beyond Al-Kuwari's reach before he returns for the season finale in Wales.
Kubica's 2014 plans are not yet clear. Citroen expects him to play a role in its new World Touring Car Championship program and he has also been linked to a place in its World Rally Car line-up.
