Peugeot's Richard Burns has been released from hospital today [Tuesday].

The Englishman, who had been in the running for the title at this weekend's final event in Wales, has now been instructed to rest, pending the results of various tests.

It is believed that he will now return home, rather than stay in Cardiff.

No details have been released to explain why he fainted at the wheel on Sunday evening.

A spokesperson for the Peugeot team, told British newspaper The Daily Telegraph: "He has been released from hospital but we are still awaiting the results of the tests. It is likely to be 24 or 48 hours before we get them."

The FIA meanwhile have confirmed that Freddy Loix can replace the Englishman at the Wales Rally GB.

Loix signed to drive for Peugeot in 2004 back in August, and this will be his first proper taste with the Peugeot 206 WRC.

More to follow as we get it...
