A run of five consecutive speed test victories in the second leg of Neste Rally Finland on Saturday, July 28, carried Toyota Yaris driver Ott Tänak into a 39.0sec lead over Mads Ostberg with whom he fought tooth and nail for top spot in Friday’s opening leg. Team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala completed the top three.

FIA World Rally Championship leader Thierry Neuville failed to make up Friday’s lost time and remained 10th. // Ott Tanak (stage leader, EST) races during FIA World Rally Championship 2018 in Jyvaskyla, Finland on July 28, 2018 // Jaanus Ree/Red Bull Content Pool // For more content, pictures and videos like this please go to www.redbullcontentpool.com
