FORD motorsport, who continue to lead the Monte Carlo rally, made an official complaint over the hazardous behaviour of fans on the course and race safety precautions after a spectator had been struck by a rally car on Saturday night. The 73-year-old spectator was taken to hospital with a broken leg but died later of a heart attack. Yesterday, the world champion, Carlos Sainz, of Spain, and his Lancia team-mate, Andrea Aghini, of Italy, withdrew from the rally after crashing.
