Citroen has confirmed that Sebastien Ogier will return to the Rally GB stages tomorrow, following his opening stage departure this afternoon.
The Frenchman smashed a wheel on the first run through the Great Orme test, but a source within Citroen has revealed the #2 DS3 WRC will be in action again from tomorrow morning.
"The damage is not bad at all," said the source, "of course he will be back. It's the wheel and disc which are broken, but nothing too bad. He will start again tomorrow, no problem."
Ogier's Citroen teammate Sebastien Loeb leads the rally at the end of the opening day, 0.7sec ahead of his title rival Mikko Hirvonen.
Ogier was not the only driver to hit trouble on the opening stage. WRC Academy driver Jose Suarez rolled his Ford Fiesta RS, halting the stage briefly. Suarez is also out for the rest of today.
