VILLA CARLOS PAZ - World champion Sebastien Ogier saw his chances of winning the Rally of Argentina go up in smoke after he failed to finish Friday's second special stage with a technical problem. "Everything went fine but after 10 km, we started losing power, like we were running on just three cylinders," the French driver told journalists. "That's sport, there's an element of luck. This time, it wasn't for us." The Frenchman's Volkswagen Polo stopped 46 kilometres into the stage, with a team spokesman telling AFP it wasn't an accident. "The team will have to determine the source of the problem and if it's an electronic failure or a breakdown in the fuel supply, I will most likely be able to continue," added Ogier who has won all three of the championship rallies so far this year.
