Kimi Raikkonen's World Rally debut ended late on Saturday when the Finn rolled his Fiat Abarth Grande Punto S2000 into a ditch.

Despite engine and suspension problems, the Ferrari driver was running 15th overall in the Finnish rally at the time and third in his class.

"I saw that I was going to go wide, but then there were a lot of rocks and unfortunately I hit them," said Raikkonen, whose co-driver Kaj Lindstrom was also unhurt in the crash.
