Reigning world rally champion Sebastien Ogier has crashed in testing ahead of the Monte Carlo rally.

The Frenchman damaged the suspension and left rear of his 2017-spec Ford brought an end to the testing session in the French Alps.

Ogier has moved to M-Sport Ford in 2017 after Volkswagen - the team with which he won four straight world titles - withdrew from the sport at the end of last year.

The season-opening Monte Carlo rally begins next week.
