22.08.2014 - ADAC Rallye Deutschland

Favourite Sébastien Ogier slides off

  • Ogier makes mistake in Moselland after thrilling duel with Latvala

Munich/Trier. 22 August, 2014 – In the first part of the ADAC Rallye Deutschland around Trier, world champion Sébastien Ogier (F) lived up to his role as the favourite, but his Volkswagen team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala (FIN) put him under massive pressure.

On the first five of 18 special stages, the Frenchman and the Finn alternated in setting fastest stage times with their Volkswagen Polo R WRCs. They easily pulled clear from the opposition. Only British driver Kris Meeke with his Citroën DS3 WRC, Spaniard Dani Sordo with the Hyundai i20 WRC and Norwegian Andreas Mikkelsen with his Volkswagen Polo R WRC at least managed to slightly keep up with the front-runners.

Belgian driver Thierry Neuville, who had heavily damaged his Hyundai i20 WRC after a multiple roll during the shakedown on Thursday, also showed a surprisingly strong performance on Friday. Within 19 hours, the service crew managed to get the crashed car back in its original shape again. Neuville made it to the start in time and in spite of some issues with the hand brake, he hold on to a strong fifth place overall.

Going into the sixth and final special stage of the daily leg on Friday, favourite Ogier had a 5.5 seconds’ lead from Latvala, but then slid off the road on the Moselland stage and landed several metres down on a parallel road through the vineyards. From there, Ogier couldn’t make it back onto the original route again and drove his hardly damaged Volkswagen Polo R WRC straight into the service area. Ogier’s excursion was penalised with ten minutes on Latvala’s fastest time, so that the world champion has now dropped back to 35th place overall.


Standings 1st leg after 6 of 18 special stages:


1. Latvala/Anttila FIN/FIN Volkswagen Polo R WRC 59.36.8 min.
2. Meeke/Nagle GBR/IRL Citroën DS3 WRC - 37.0 sec.
3. Sordo/Marti ESP/ESP Hyundai i20 WRC - 42.6 sec.
4. Mikkelsen/Floene NOR/NOR Volkswagen Polo R WRC - 45.6 sec.
