WATCH: Big roll for Suninen on SS1

M-Sport Ford driver Teemu Suninen slammed into a bank and rolled his Ford Fiesta WRC on the opening test of the 2021 season.

Confronted by wet and slippery conditions, the Finnish driver was flying on the 20.58km Saint-Disdier – Corps stage and was well on track to set quickest time. However, at 20.1km, Suninen slammed into a bank on a sweeping right-hander, flipping and rolling down a bank on the opposite side of the road.

Both Suninen and co-driver Mikko Markkula, rejoining his fellow countryman for the first time since the end of 2018, were unhurt.

Estonian Ott Tänak went on to win the stage with a time of 12min 05.7sec.
