Four talking points from a fantastic Rally Finland

Elfyn Evans underlined what a class act he has grown into on the World Rally Championship by winning one of his sport’s ‘majors’ last weekend. The 32-year-old became only the second British driver after Kris Meeke to win Rally Finland, powering through the flat-out forest roads to see off the threat from Ott Tänak after a fantastic duel between the pair. The performance should be considered among the best from a British sportsperson in any field this year, such were the levels achieved by Evans on rallying’s fastest roads – and the result means he still has a shot at becoming world champion this year, too.
