Rovanperä, Tänak strike out on Friday morning

Kalle Rovanperä and Ott Tänak both failed to complete Friday morning's loop at Rally Sweden as Takamoto Katsuta moved into the lead

World Champion Rovanperä was leading in Sweden before stopping briefly 12.6km into SS4 - Floda 1 - before pulling off the road. It remained unclear exactly what had happened to his Toyota GR Yaris Rally1.

Further up the road, Ott Tänak was experiencing his own issues, picking up damage when he spun at 18.5km and ended in a snowback. He was able to get his Hyundai i20 N Rally1 back onto the road, but needed to pull over soon after.
