Tänak wins in the Arctic, Rovanperä grabs WRC lead

Ott Tänak sealed a dominant start-to-finish victory at Arctic Rally Finland Powered by CapitalBox on Sunday afternoon. He built a comfortable lead during the first two legs and eased through the finale to win the FIA World Rally Championship’s second round by 17.5sec. Rovanperä, starting just his ninth top-level rally, began the final day with a 1.8sec buffer to Neuville. He extended it by a tenth in the first of two passes through the 22.47km Aittajärvi test, before winning the final Wolf Power Stage to retain his grip on second. The 19-year-old scored a top three stage time on Saturday and was on course to finish sixth before spinning his i20 into the snow in the final test and dropping behind Katsuta.
