Former F1 driver Robert Kubica says the reason he crashed out on Friday was because he lost his braking point as the car was "jumping about".

Kubica, who had been fifth in SS2 - the first 'proper' stage of the event, went out in the subsequent test, the 18.34 km Grighine Nord 1 stage, binning his Fiesta RS WRC car 8 kilometres in.

He will now re-start today [Saturday] under Rally 2, along with the likes of Citroen's Kris Meeke, VW's Andreas Mikkelsen and Hyundai's Dani Sordo.

"There was a big downhill section braking into a very tight left-hander. Unfortunately there were big holes [in the road] in the braking zone," Kubica told the official WRC site.

"I lost my braking point because the car was jumping about and we hit the small wall and damaged the rear-left suspension."
