O tt Tanak has made the journey of his life. In a rally that, thanks to the high speed and the weather, is perhaps one of the toughest of the year, he was never worse than second from the first kilometer, underpinned his claim to leadership with five best times, was briefly in the ditch, but did not hit any trees and no menhir. The Estonian managed his lead of 21 seconds on Sunday morning almost casually.

His second World Cup success catapulted him from a young star and one-hit wonder to a future title contender and potential team leader, who did not only would like to keep M-Sport, but would also like to buy Toyota.

could be on German asphalt, showed Dani Sordo, who initially led and achieved a total of six best times. The Spanish veteran reached out especially on the Panzerplatte: three best times in a row on Saturday afternoon. Only the fish had long since been cleaned. Sordo had thrown his i20 down a deep slope into the undergrowth on the fourth of 21 tests. The best times were just a hit, the result: 34th place.

Neuville, on the other hand, found it difficult to keep up from the start and was almost half a minute behind on the clock after the first stage. Eyewitnesses reported that the Belgian went to work with great dedication in the first few meters of the first long armored plate test, but his departure remains a mystery. A slightly washed-out left branch with a row of curb stones protruding ten centimeters from the ground tore the rear left wishbone from the wheel carrier and the drive shaft from the differential housing.
