Tänak beats Rovanperä to Rally Finland victory

Ott Tänak and Hyundai had no expectations to compete for victory at Rally Finland last weekend. How the Estonian defied that pessimism in an i20 N Rally1 that remains a handful compared to its planted Toyota GR Yaris rival was the stuff of sheer grit and commitment. Tänak led from the moment he won the first stage on Friday morning, holding his nerve brilliantly as World Rally Championship points leader Kalle Rovanperä hunted him down on home ground, in a performance and a duel to remember.
