Video: This is why Kalle Rovanperä may become the best rally driver ever

When you consider Kalle Rovanperä is just 21 years old, it’s difficult to comprehend the meteoric rise of this extraordinary young talent. To put that into context, the two most successful rally drivers of all time, Sébastiens Loeb and Ogier, didn’t win their first WRC titles until they were 30 years old. Rovanperä is already well on his way to his first championship in 2022 having won five of the opening seven rallies of the season. But then you see footage like this, and suddenly it all becomes incredibly clear. This exceptional driver from Finland possesses skills that very few other drivers in history can compare. Even if he doesn’t end up taking the title at the end of the year, we’re in no doubt that Rovanperä is on his way to becoming one of the best and most successful rally drivers of all time.
