The weekend last in the last special of the Mexico rally, the British driver Kris Meeke was leading the race when he made a runway excursion in a poorly negotiated turn. At the wheel of his Citroën C3 WRC, he then found himself in a parking lot and was disoriented for a few moments. After a small slalom in the middle of the parked vehicles, it could finally join the track. Despite this mishap, he still finished first in the test, with a little more than 13 seconds ahead of the French Sébastien Ogier.
