Picture of the Day #004

During the recent WRC Rally Mexico, Sébastien Ogier suffered a final day accident that took the 27-year-old Frenchman out of the rally lead.

The crash would hand victory to Ogier’s Citroën teammate (and seven-time WRC Champion) Sébastien Loeb, eventually dropping Ogier to 6th in the points standings. While Ogier solemnly considered what could have been his third victory, Loeb jumped to 2nd in the Championship, just behind the revitalised Mikko Hirvonen.

The departing message, “Viva Mexico”, was carved into the dust riddled windscreen, signalling the obvious despondency of losing what was a fantastic event.
Round 3 of the 2011 WRC continues next weekend when the series travels to Portugal.
