Reigning FIA World Rally Champion Sébastien Ogier made a costly mistake in the final stage of Rallye Deutschland today, handing the advantage to team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala after the opening day of competition. The Finn heads the leaderboard with 37 seconds in hand to second-placed Kris Meeke. Dani Sordo, who has suffered with a more disadvantageous road position, has climbed into third and is just a further 5.6 seconds adrift.
DRIVERS – Jules BIANCHI (Marussia), Daniil KVYAT (Toro Rosso), Romain GROSJEAN (Lotus), Felipe MASSA (Williams), Nico ROSBERG (Mercedes), Daniel RICCIARDO (Red Bull Racing)
Can I start with a question to all of you? We had news this week that next season there will be a 17-year-old driver on the grid. Can I have your reaction from a driver’s point of view? And maybe we’ll start with Felipe.
