WRC Rally Finland: Kubica rolls in SS18

Robert Kubica retires again on Rally Finland after rolling in Saturday's final test
Former F1 driver Robert Kubica has crashed out of Rally Finland, rolling his Fiesta RS WRC in Saturday's final stage.

Kubica, who had been running well down after alternator problems forced him out on Friday before SS6, went off the road near the finish of SS18, the 15.59 km Horkka 2 test. Kubica and co-driver Maciej Szczepaniak are both okay.

Writing on his official Facebook page later on, the Pole said: "Unfortunately our day ended with a roll on the last stage...

"Heading to the left corner we were passing the crest followed by a big pool. We could not see it, aquaplaned and went off. With hard tyres we did not have a chance to stay on the road.

"Unfortunately this is the end of Rally Finland for us.

He must be gutted but it is not that he is fighting for wins this year. The pace is good, fewer mistakes so it is looking promising for the next year. That new Ford seems to be quite delicate, all drivers keep having mechanical problems.
