Power Stage Classic: Finland 2014

Next to winning their first WRC rally, winning at home rates just as highly for most WRC drivers. This week’s classic Power Stage takes us to Finland in 2014, when Jari-Matti Latvala was trying to do just that.

Following on from his maiden win on home soil in 2010, Latvala did not return to the top of the Finnish podium as fast as some may have expected, settling for a 2nd, 3rd and 17th in the preceding years, bringing us up to the summer of 2014.

Going into Sunday morning, Latvala and his Volkswagen team-mate Sébastien Ogier were locked in their own battle, with third-placed Kris Meeke more than 30 seconds behind in his Citroën DS 3. Winning the opening test of the morning, Latvala opened the gap to Ogier to 5 seconds, but this would be as big a lead as Ogier would allow his team-mate…setting up the perfect finish.
