McRae Crashes in Rally of New Zealand

Colin McRae's slim prospects disappear as he crashes in the opening leg of the Rally of New Zealand. McRae misunderstood his navigator and crashed the Ford Focus.
"I misunderstood a pace note and went into a downhill right hand bend in third gear instead of second. We slid off and hit a fence post" said McRae.
I'm guessing Fords hopes have all but dissapeared now although the Peugeot's seem to have already had everything pretty much under control.

I wonder if that incident was the straw that broke the camel's back in regards of McRae and Grist going their own seperate ways?

I'm a happy camper!

Ford hasn't signed McRae for next season either.
