MIKOLAJKI, Poland - French defending World Rally champion Sebastien Ogier, driving a Volkswagen Polo R, was leading the field after the first day of the 2014 Rally of Poland.

Juho Hanninen (Hyundai i20) won the second special and was fourth overnight.

MISJUDGED

Local hero Robert Kubica, a former Formula 1 driver now driving a Ford Fiesta, lost 30 seconds on Stage 2 after leaving the road. His car was not damaged.

Kubica said: "I was braking over a crest, the car unloaded and we went straight into the ditch and rolled."

There are 21 stages through Friday, Saturday and Sunday over (June 27-29 2014).
