Sebastien Ogier’s co-driver Julien Ingrassia has sustained an injury to his right arm, after an accident in the last of today’s stages in the season opening Rallye Monte-Carlo.

The French duo’s Skoda Fabia S2000 left the road around 5km from the end of the Lamastre-Gilhoc-Alboussiere stage, and sustained heavy damage as a result.

“Julien told us that there is some problem from his arm, but he doesn’t expect it is broken, the doctor will be able to find out some more,” team press officer Stefan Moser told Autosport. “The crash happened in a long left corner. The car went off the road and hit at the right-hand side of the stage. I believe the right-hand side of the car is destroyed.”

The exact nature of Ingrassia’s injuries are unknown so far, however they are expected to be minor and unlikely to rule him out for any other rallies this season.
