Former F1 ace Robert Kubica stopped in SS13 of Rallye Deutschland on Saturday morning after damaging his rear-left weehl.

The incident happened 17.8 km into the 45.61km Panzerplatte Long 1 stage, the final one of the loop, when he hit a Hinkelstein.

The Pole had been running 23rd overall in his Fiesta RS WRC, on the backfoot before the event even started after picking up a 5 minute penalty for an engine change.
