Mads Ostberg has had to retire from day one of Rally Argentina after breaking a steering arm on the repeat loop this afternoon.

The Qatar M-Sport World Rally Team man had been running fifth overall in his Fiesta RS WRC car, but stopped 15 kilometres into the 27.09 km Santa Catalina/La Pampa 2 test.

"Stopped on SS4 with broken steering arm," Mads wrote on his official Facebook page.
