Ott Tanak teaches muscle

The champion has climbed to the lead at home, topping the Hyundai's hat-trick, with Breen and Neuville escorting him through qualifying.


You are grown up with the arrival of the World Rally Championship in your country. Ott Tanak, the reigning champion, is giving his rivals in Estonia no choice. He moved to the top of the standings after the first loop and tops the Hyundai's treble, with Craig Breen and Thierry Neuville escorting the hometown hero in second and third place.

The day started with surprise. The young Kalle Rovanpera prevailed in the first stage and climbed to the leadership at 19 years. But his joy did not last long, since in the next he suffered a puncture that took him off the head fight. It didn't take long for Tanak to pick up the baton, taking the lead when he reached the half-day break. His teammates Breen and Neuville march behind him demonstrating the competitiveness of the i20 on the very fast and bumpy Estonian roads.

Sebastien Ogier, despite opening the track, has saved the furniture and is in the wake of the three Korean vehicles. In the afternoon, the starting order changes, and it will no longer be necessary for him to clean the gravel, so a comeback can be expected from the six-time champion, who has the other two Toyota of Elfyn Evans and Rovanpera behind him.Classification
