Around midnight yesterday the resolution of the sports authorities of the Rally Argentina on the accusation of the French Sébastien Ogier, who had claimed that several pilots had not followed the roadmap during the SS 11 (Cuchilla Nevada-Characato) during the second stage of the test.

Indeed, those responsible for the competition noted that the Irish Chris Meeke (Toyota), Estonian Ott Tänak (Toyota) and the Norwegian Mads ostberg (Citroën), in the WRC2 category; They had not respected figure 14 on page 33 of the roadbook of day 2 and for that reason they were penalized with ten seconds each.

Thanks to the sanction to Meeke, Ogier moved up one spot and became the new third of the race organized by the Automobile Club Argentino in the absence of Sunday's stage. However, the multiple champion will have to defend the last step of the podium tooth and nail since six seconds from his location is the Spanish Dani sordo (Hyundai) already seven, Meeke himself.

This dispute adds great appeal to the definition of the fifth appointment on the calendar against the Belgian's dominance Thierry Neuville (Hyundai), who is 45.7 seconds ahead of his Norwegian teammate Andreas Mikkelsen.
