Fortunately, the car suffered is not too serious – the delay in evacuation and the repairs amounted to less than four hours. By nightfall mechanics repaired the Ford Fiesta WRC 2017 and SEB was able to continue working.
This fact certainly pleased Ott Tanaka – Estonian Wednesday should replace the Frenchman on the tests, and if the incident was more serious, he simply had nothing to go.
The fact is that at this point in the M-Sport was built in just four chassis of the new sample. Chassis number 1 was used and continues to be used on the tests, but three other cars will start Rally Monte Carlo – Ogier will go to chassis No. 2, Ott Tanak – the chassis number 3, and Elvino Evans gets the fourth copy.
