Subaru have decided not to protest after a last-day controversy on the Argentina rally and provisional results were confirmed as official late on Saturday by rally stewards. The rally had been thrown into disarray when the route was partially blocked on the first stage of the last day, and all the leading drivers except Keneth Eriksson, of Sweden, took a 400 metres detour. The Swede forced his way past the wood and stones blocking the correct route and, when he later dropped behind Sainz after losing four minutes changing a puncture, Subaru made an official query.
