Ogier crashes out

Game over for Sebastien Ogier as he bins his VW Motorsport-run Skoda Fabia S2000 in SS10...

Volkswagen Motorsport man Sebastien Ogier has crashed out of Rallye Monte Carlo in the final stage of day two.

Ogier had been enjoying a brilliant event in his Skoda Fabia S2000 and was fifth overall following the first loop this morning. Although he slipped back this afternoon and was overhauled by M-Sport Ford WRT man Evgeny Novikov in SS8, as conditions dried, he remained sixth. However, during the second run through the 21.66 km Lamastre-Gilhoc-Alboussiere test he suffered a sizeable off ending his event.

Ogier and co-driver, Julien Ingrassia both escaped unharmed from their SS10 accident, although Ingrassia was later taken to hospital for checks, after complaining about pain in his right arm.

Unfortunately he proved a different point than he was trying to, same as J-ML yesterday, They need all the points they can get, in the bag early in the year otherwise it's title no Monsieur Loeb. 12 rallies left, it really is a short season to reclaim any loss this early
