Sebastien Ogier has been promoted into seventh place in Rally Argentina after event organisers amended his time for the final run through the Cordoba Super Special stage.

Ogier had been handed a penalty after receiving a push start at the beginning of the stage when the starter motor on his Citroen C4 WRC failed.

As a result, the Frenchman's time through the stage was noted down as 5min 26.6secs, which dropped him down to ninth place in the overall standings.

After the event however, officials removed the three minute penalty and gave Ogier his actual time through the stage of 2min 27.8secs.

The decision means he moves back up to seventh place in the standings and picks up two championship points, with Nasser Al-Attiyah - the PWRC winner - taking the final point for eighth.
