M-Sports. Teemu Suninen leads his first WRC event in Sweden from Ott Tanaks Toyota and Andeas Mikkelsens Hyundai. Jari-Matti Latvala and Sebastien Ogier had been fighting in the leading group of cars but both went off into snow banks and lost varying amounts of time, retiring for the day to return under Rally 2 conditions for the second day.

Elfyn Evans is fourth, Esapekka Lappi fifth for Citroen and Sebastien Loeb sixth on his first snow rally for 6 years. Thierry Neuville is 7th and Kris Meeks eighth, 53 seconds down on the leader.
