Citroen duo Kris Meeke and Mads Ostberg led the Rally of Argentina, but the race was overshadowed when six spectators were hurt after a car careered off the track on Saturday.
The accident happened on the ninth stage in Cordoba when the Hyundai of New Zealand's Hayden Paddon ploughed into the crowd.
The seriousness of the injuries is not yet known.
In the race, British driver Meeke was 32 seconds ahead of Ostberg with Finland's Jari-Matti Latvala, in a VW-Polo, in third spot, more than a minute off the lead.
World champion Sebastien Ogier, whose Polo broke down on Friday to leave him out of contention for a fourth successive win this season, rejoined the race on Saturday but with a 35-minute penalty.
Behind the top three, Spain's Dani Sordo was fourth for Hyundai with Britain's Elfyn Evans in fifth in a Ford Fiesta.
