Following some wild and loose action on Finland’s gravel, the FIA World Rally Championship returns to asphalt this weekend for Rallye Deutschland – keep up to date with daily highlight shows on Motorsport.tv.
Held in the Saarland region of western Germany, the route offers a challenging variety of tight vineyard roads and open military training ground tracks lined with unforgiving hinkelsteins. With the scores tied at the top of the standings after Finland, make sure you don’t miss a beat with Motorsport.tv.
Sebastien Ogier has led the points since winning the season-opening Monte Carlo Rally, but the Frenchman endured a torrid Finland that ended after coming off worse in a collision with a tree, which left co-driver Julien Ingrassia concussed.
Having won in Germany for the last two years with VW, the reigning champion will be hoping to re-affirm his position at the head of the standings. But Ogier will have to be wary of title challenger Thierry Neuville, the Belgian drawing level in the points with a conservative run to sixth in Finland.
Throw in the high chance of changeable weather, and this rally has the potential to be a cracker – don’t miss the action, which starts on Friday.
