Villagra out in Finland.

Munchi's Ford World Rally Team's Federico Villagra has retired from day two of the Neste Oil Rally Finland in the penultimate test of the day.

Villagra, who had been running twelfth overall, went off the road towards the end of the 21.13 kilometre-run through Juupajoki.

It is not yet known if he will re-start on Sunday under the SupeRally format.

Andreas Mikkelsen, who was fifth fastest in SS20, revealed that it was a 'tricky corner' that claimed the Argentine star.

"I was pleased with my time in SS20 but I had to slow down when I saw Villagra off. He went off on a really tricky corner but fortunately I have it marked on my pacenotes," noted Mikkelsen.

Khalid Al Qassimi added that he didn't like the test one little bit: "I backed off when I saw spectators on the stage and Federico pulled over. I think it is a horrible stage - I couldn't get a rhythm."

Suzuki Swift man Michal Kosciuszko meanwhile, who had been leading the Junior WRC class, also hit trouble in Juupajoki. He now drops behind Citroen's Martin Prokop and Renault's Patrik Sandell to third in the J-WRC, 1 minute 55.2 seconds off P1.
