Sebastien Ogier's sensational run on the Monte Carlo Rally has come to an end after the Volkswagen driver crashed out on SS10.
The Frenchman had run as high as third on the opening round of the World Rally Championship, despite driving a Super 2000-specification Skoda Fabia against the powerful World Rally Cars.
The former Junior World Rally champion had slipped down the field as conditions dried today and was down to sixth when he and co-driver Julien Ingrassia went off the road.
Following crews reported that the accident was a very substantial one, but that both Ogier and Ingrassia were unhurt.
