Kimi Raikkonen and Kaj Lindstrom escaped uninjured from the accident that caused stage four of Rally Bulgaria to be stopped.
The former grand prix driver was running fifth, and producing his best form in rallying to date, when he crashed near the end of today's final stage.
With following crews reporting that they could not see where Raikkonen's Citroen had ended up, there was initially concern over the condition of the crew. But Citroen Junior team boss Benoit Nogier said the Finnish duo were unhurt.
"I don't know exactly what happened, but in the middle of the stage Kimi went off the road and he did a half-roll," Nogier told AUTOSPORT. "The car is on its roof and he hit a tree."
Despite the accident, Nogier reckons it is possible that Raikkonen could resume under superally rules for leg two.
"From what I hear it seems the car could be okay for tomorrow," Nogier said. He added that the team had been thrilled with Raikkonen's pace prior to the crash.
"It's a shame, because Kimi was going very well," said Nogier. "He showed very good speed this morning and particularly in this stage. He took the soft tires when everyone else was on the hard and it seems his choice could've been quite good."
