WRC reporter Colin Clark suggested in his show "Thoughts from the Kitchen Table" that after the failed Turkish rally, Ott Tänak is no longer a reliable car racing championship title.
"After the German rally, we thought Sebastien Ogier was essentially out of the title race. Now he's back in the game. He's putting pressure on Toyota. Not directly to Thanks, because it doesn't seem to be affected by pressure. He knows that when the car is running, he wins. But again, the question is Toyota's durability, "Clark said.
The Estonian Turkish rally was ruined by the driver's dismissal of the Toyota Yaris WRC engine.
"Tänak himself said in Turkey that if he really wanted to fight for the World Cup title, things like that could not happen. Who would I put my money on right now? there is great confidence, "said Clark.
There will be three more races in the World Series: Great Britain, Spain and Australia. Today's success is 17 points ahead of Ogier (Citroen), Thierry Neuville (Hyundai) is 30 points behind the Estonian.
