Raikkonen impresses in Arctic Rally; Sordo wins

Former Formula One champion Kimi Raikkonen had a second day of impressive driving at the Arctic Lapland Rally but could not make up for a previous mistake and finished well behind winner Dani Sordo of Spain.
Raikkonen lost more than 30 minutes on Friday after running his Citroen off the road and needing repairs, but still set the second-best time on nine special stages during the two-day race.
Sordo won every stage to finish in 1 hour, 38 minutes, 29.1 seconds. Kosti Katajamaki was second, 6 minutes, 7.7 seconds behind.
Raikkonen, who will compete in the World Rally Championship this year after being let go by F1 team Ferrari, used the race as a test ahead of the first WRC event in Sweden next month.
