Briton Meeke grabs early Corsica lead

Britain's red-hot Kris Meeke surged into the early lead in the Tour of Corsica on Friday ahead of world champion Sebastien Ogier of France.

Citroen racer Meeke, who triumphed in Mexico in the previous leg of the World Rally Championship, was nearly nine seconds in front of Ford's Ogier after the first two specials in Corsica. 

Belgium's Thierry Neuville, in a Hyundai, was third overall in Corsica, the fourth stop in the world championship.

"I enjoyed it and the car’s working fantastic," Meeke said after a dominant performance in the opening speed test.

"A good start, but there’s a long way to go."
