Ogier crashes out of Rally of Germany
The car driven by French rallying world champion Sebastien Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia comes off the road on the Moselland stage during the first part of the ADAC Rally Germany near Trier, western Germany, on August 22, 2014 - by Alexander Wittling
The Frenchman, who also exited the road into a vineyard on Friday, crashed his car heavily into a roadside barrier shortly into Stage 8, which was then cancelled for safety reasons.
"We were in sixth gear on a long straight," Ogier said. "Then there was a slight corner to the right on a ridge.
"The jump was a little longer than we thought, the back took off when we touched down and I lost control of the car.
"Then we hit the roadside barrier and we landed in a ditch.
"The most important thing at the moment is that Julien (Ingrassia, the copilot) and me are both okay."
Ogier's teammate Jari-Matti Latvala of Finland was leading the rally, which ends Sunday.
