Rally Argentina organisers have been forced to submit a revised itinerary to the FIA after a safety inspection underlined concerns.

Saturday's leg has been redrawn due to safety worries, which means the rally is now under an FIA yellow card warning after spectator safety fears were highlighted last year, with a total of three stages being scrapped and replaced.

Saturday's original itinerary featured three stages in the north of Villa Carlos Paz which were set to return for the first time since 2003 but have been binned following an inspection by FIA World Rally Championship safety delegate Michele Mouton last month.

The updated itinerary sees the WRC take trips through the Villa Bustos-Tanti stage that was used in 2015, plus two new tests, Los Gigantes-Cantera El Condor and Boca Del Arroyo-Bajo del Pungo.

The rest of the Rally Argentina itinerary remains untouched including the new Thursday opening super special stage in Cordoba City.

12 months ago Citroen claimed a one-two result with Kris Meeke notching up an emotional maiden WRC victory ahead of team-mate Mads Ostberg, with M-Sport's Elfyn Evans completing the rostrum as all three Volkswagen Motorsport cars hit trouble due to an engine fault.
