TÄNAK SETS THE STAGE FOR FINAL-DAY SHOWDOWN

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

Following a dramatic day at Orlen 74th #rallypoland, Ott Tänak and Martin Järveoja are still in with a fighting chance of victory – currently holding second place behind the wheel of their Ecoboost-powered Ford Fiesta #wrc.

Over an action-packed nine stages, all of the front-runners suffered their fair share of misfortune, Tänak included, but the determined Estonian is never one to give up the fight.

With Tänak just 3.1 seconds adrift of a second successive FIA World Rally Championship victory, the stage is set and an epic battle awaits through tomorrow's final 59.66 kilometers.

Team Principal, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:

"It's been some day out there – and I can't remember the last time all three of the rally-leading drivers had issues on the same stage!

"For us, Ott lost the rear wing which made things extremely difficult over the closing stages. But he kept it together and the fight is still very much on for tomorrow.

"With just 3.1 seconds between first and second, it's all to play for and the weather has the potential to make it an extremely exciting and interesting final day. And one thing is for sure – Ott is not likely to give up without a fight!

"Sebastien had a really difficult morning. With two punctures and only one spare he had to manage the situation and fell further adrift of the leading pack. But as I've always said, you can never write him off.

"He's kept his head down and now finds himself in fourth place which would be a fantastic result considering everything he had to contend with this weekend."
