Tänak on podium in Rally Poland, Ogier defends title ({{commentsTotal}})


Ott Tänak finished third overall in the Lotos 72nd Rally Poland, part of the FIA World Rally Championship season. This was the second podium finish at a WCR rally for Tänak.

After 19 stages, Tänak and co-pilot Raigo Mõlder (Ford) were third behind winner Sebastien Ogier and second overall Andreas Mikkelsen, having won three stages back to back in the early part of the race.

"I'm quite flat out. The car is perfect and I'm enjoying it. The instruction for the team is to let the other guys know were are here - and we'll be coming for them in the second half of the season," Tänak said after stage four.

However, suffering from faulty breakes in the second half of the Friday, Tänak finished the first full day of the rally in fourth position, 16.7 seconds behind Ogier.

Two final stages weere driven in Baranowo on Sunday.

Also competing in this year's race in WRC2 classification were Estonian rally drivers Karl Kruuda (Citroen) and Sander Pärn (Ford).

First established in 1921, the Rally of Poland is the second-oldest rally in the world.

The 2014 Rally Poland was also won by Ogier.
