Rally Mexico S-WRC winner Nasser Al-Attiyah was excluded from the results this afternoon after his Ford Fiesta S2000 was found to be in breach of the technical regulations.

Al-Attiyah won the S-WRC category by 13.5 seconds from fellow Fiesta S2000 driver Martin Prokop, finishing seventh overall.

However, at post-event scrutineering Al-Attiyah's car was found to be in breach of the rules after the valve in the fuel cell ventilation system did not conform to technical regulations.

Following a hearing attended by BARWA World Rally Team management, the event stewards have excluded Al-Attiyah from the results. The team decided not to appeal the decision.

This now means that Martin Prokop is now promoted to winner of the S-WRC category in Mexico. The new results are as below:
