Ott Tanak crashed his Ford Fiesta RS WRC during his pre-Monte Carlo Rally test on Friday morning.
The car suffered damage to the left-front and will not be running again during the test. The M-Sport team is now focusing on re-preparing the car for the Estonian to use on the event itself.
A source at M-Sport said: "This was Ott's entry car for the event. We don't know too much about what happened, but the damage isn't too bad. The car won't run again today simply because we have to focus on getting it ready for the start. He was supposed to do around 70km or something, but I'm not sure how much he did in the end, but it was not that much."
Tanak's car will be running in the same black livery the factory Fords used on Rally France last season. The Estonian is starting his first full season in a World Rally Car, having finished sixth in a Fiesta WRC on Rally GB last November.
