The Toyota racer will keep winning the rally as well as the lead in the championship scoring.
The Frenchman attended three hearings by commissioners with his co-driver Julien Ingrassio and sports boss Kai Lindstrom. They fined the crew 5000 euros and banned them from performing, although in their opinion they did not break any rules, but they set a bad example when, after exchanging all the information, they wanted to drive away from the scene and almost ran over a policeman who did not want to withdraw. .
Ogier, on the other hand, was fined another 2000 euros for immediately passing a red light at a traffic light. After the rally, the world champion reported to the police station in Zagreb, where he met with a police officer and a BMW driver, to whom he apologized for the unfortunate event.
The commissioners, however, issued a warning to the Toyota Gazoo Racing team because Lehtinen approached the race car from a service area more than a kilometer away.
