Latvala makes most of Ogier's crash
22 Aug 2014 21:09
World Rally Championship leader Sebastien Ogier dramatically crashed out of the Rallye Deutschland as Jari-Matti Latvala took a sizeable advantage into the second day.
Ogier, who leads the standings by 44 points, appeared on course to pip his Volkswagen team-mate and closest rival once again on the opening day of competition.
Having claimed three fastest times out of five to hold a 5.5-second lead over Latvala, who won the other two, Ogier came a cropper at the final delayed Moselland stage and he will restart under
Rally 2 regulations tomorrow with a 10 minute retirement penalty. Latvala took full advantage to remain top, with Kris Meeke's Citroen DS3 a full 37 seconds behind.
"We got a message in the car that Ogier had stopped and then saw another message to say he was out," said Latvala to
"I lost my rhythm a little because I didn't know whether to drive fast or slow down. Miikka (co-driver Anttila) told me I was in the lead and could back off, but I slowed too much and found it hard to concentrate."
