A French winemaker who saw a world-class rally driver skew off the road and into the heart of his vines has played down the damage caused.
Norwegian rally driver Petter Solberg lost control of his Ford Fiesta RS WRC and plunged into vineyards in Alsace during the Rallye de France event. 

 Solberg and his co-driver were unhurt in the crash, which happened in the Epfig region, but winemaker Daniel Wolfer's lush green vines were not so lucky.
