This Sunday the last test of the third date of the World Rally Championship (WRC). Before starting, the drivers and teams had to go through a liaison stage to be able to compete in the race. These links are made on highways and streets in which the pilots must respect the traffic regulations and the circulation of the rest of the citizens.
However, this Sunday the scandal reached the WRC after one of its top figures had an accident. Sébastien Ogier, last World Rally Champion, starred in an accident on this link. It was not just any accident. The Frenchman was in the middle of a highway, arriving at the place of the start. But a tourist hit him on the right side of his Toyota.
Everything started badly for Ogier, who in this situation saw how his car was somewhat scraped on the sides. However, the worst part was taken by the citizen who was driving his private car. His airbag opened and he crashed hard against the highway guards. It should be noted that the Frenchman was leading the Rally and was the candidate to stay with the test.
Ogier not only starred in the accident, but also ran away. The Frenchman did not attend the accident. A few meters later, the World Champion was arrested by the police, who were already notified of what had happened. But the attitude of the team driver Toyota Gazoo Racing it was totally reprehensible. Social networks quickly echoed and viralized the videos.
The police detained Ogier and notified him of what happened. But the Frenchman not only did not listen to the agents, he also quickly fled. Perhaps in the adrenaline rush of the competition or in a bad attitude on his part, the pilot almost ran over the policeman who could do little before the power of the Toyota. The Frenchman got to start the test, but the performance of his car was badly damaged by the accident.
