WRC Monte Carlo: Bouffier forced to quit ahead of final day

Bryan Bouffier exits the Monte Carlo Rally ahead of the final day of action, the Frenchman forced out of sixth place.
Bryan Bouffier has been denied a top six finish on the Monte Carlo Rally after being forced to retire with damage to his Ford Fiesta WRC RS.

The Frenchman was in contention for a top five finish as he embarked on a duel with countryman Stefan Lefebvre, but having gotten to within four seconds of his rival coming into the final stage of the day on leg three, a slip on ice saw him strike a wheel and bend his rear suspension.

Though he limped to the end of the stage, Bouffier was forced to retire his Fiesta before the final leg. This gives Lefebvre a clear run for fifth place – which will be his best WRC result yet -, while Dani Sordo has gained two places to go sixth on the first stage of the last day having also overtaken Ott Tanak.
