Rovanpera flies towards the precocity record

The young Finn has fully stepped on the accelerator and has distanced himself from Breen, heading for the record of the youngest World Cup victory.


Kalle Rovanpera's display at Rally Estonia is reaching its best moments in the second stage. If in the first the young Finn already made clear his candidacy for victory, which would make him the earliest winner in the history of the World Cup, on Saturday he stepped on the accelerator and put land in between with his closest rival, Craig Breen. Fly to the precocity record.

If anyone had any doubts about the possibilities of Rovanpera, from the first stretch of the day they have been in charge of clearing them. He has won again and has opened an important gap with Breen, who seems to 'deflate' in the fight and justified himself by assuring that "to fight Kalle he would need to run the entire World Cup", referring to his situation at Hyundai, which shares the third car with Dani Sordo. Precisely the Spaniard is in Estonia following the test at the foot of the ditch and was hallucinating when Breen greeted him while driving in the middle of a special.After them, a close duel between Thierry Neuville and Sebastien Ogier for the third step of the podium takes place, a fight in which for the moment the Belgian seems to have better cards than the Frenchman, although everyone knows that he never gives up. Elfyn Evans follows them without showing great things in her 100th World Cup appearance.

Local idol Ott Tanak has re-enlisted after his retirement on Friday, and has shown what he could have done had he not suffered three punctures that left him in the gutter. He has won three of the four stages in the morning and makes clear his status as the favorite to 'catch' additional points from Sunday's final Power Stage.Classification
