Tänak led the four-day event early on but slipped back as conditions turned against him on Friday afternoon. He regained the initiative on Saturday, and when closest rival Teemu Suninen spun into the snow, Tänak inherited a comfortable half-minute lead.
He extended that to almost a minute, making for an easy drive through Sunday’s three stages of Rally Sweden near the rally base of Torsby.
