Hayden Paddon has dropped back to sixth place in Rally Mexico after the first three of today's nine stages.

The Hyundai driver broke his suspension on the second stage of the day to fall behind Norway's Mads Ostberg, but he's repaired it and clocked the fourth best time on the latest stage.

Paddon's more than five minutes behind the rally leader, Finland's Jari-Matti Latvala.

World champion Sebastien Ogier is in second with Paddon's Hyundai teammate Dani Sordo third.
