The pairing was due to line up for the final round of the FIA World Rally Championship behind the wheel of their Qatar-liveried Ford Fiesta RS WRC, but will sadly not be present in the Welsh forests.

The Qatari was suffering from some pain in his hand following a high-speed incident on the previous round in Spain. Following medical advice, Al-Attiyah has been advised not to participate this weekend.

M-Sport wish Al-Attiyah a swift recovery and look forward to seeing him back on the stages in the near future.
