The Hyundai i20 driver led the three-day Rally Estonia for virtually the whole way to win by 22.2sec from team-mate Craig Breen. Sébastien Ogier retained the series lead with three rounds remaining by finishing third in a Toyota Yaris, a further 4.7sec adrift.
Kalle Rovanperä won the live TV Wolf Power Stage in a Yaris to collect five bonus points. Team-mate Elfyn Evans was second to claim four points, with Tänak taking three in third. Ogier clinched two points in fourth and Breen secured the final point in fifth.
Estonia was the 600th WRC round since the championship began in 1973 and marked the championship’s return after a six-month pause due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
