He’s won three rallies this season, but couldn’t extend the thrill further than Rally New Zealand, which hasn’t been on the calendar for ten years. The winner of six out of eleven Rallyes this season, can no longer join Rovanpera, each victory in the WRC can achieve a maximum of 30 points.

He succeeds Ogier, the eight-time world champion, who has competed in only a few rounds this year. The youngest world champion in the history of the World Rally Championship, which was created in 1972, has been Briton Colin McRae since 1995, who was crowned at the age of 27. The last Finnish rally champion was Markus Gronholm, who was named in 2002. Kali Rovanpera, the son of a rally man, was only two years old.
