Solberg was disqualified from third overall after his Citroen DS3 WRC was found to be underweight following post-event technical checks, which promoted factory Ford driver Hirvonen from fourth to third in the process. And with the addition of three more drivers’ championship points to his total, Hirvonen is now level on 196 points with just the rallies in Spain and Great Britain remaining.
