WRC 2022, 55th Vodafone Rally Portugal (end) – Kale Rovanpera, youngest and best

Another exciting rally is behind us. “Toyota” is celebrating, champagne is opening, congratulations are pouring in, everyone is radiant… .. They won the first TWO SEATS at a very complex macadam rally, the first on such a surface, this season and with new hybrids.

55. Vodafone Rally Portugal

The third place on the podium was only a short time away, and the persistent veteran, 39-year-old Spaniard Dani Sordo, is to blame for that. became the best representative of “Hyundai” at this Vodafone 2022 rally… ..is not enough… and well done to the old guard!

Everyone congratulates the blonde Finn, the really brilliant 21-year-old Kale Rovanperi da. Is it possible for such a young man to surpass the entire world rally elite and win the last exam, when he could be tactical and take his foot off the accelerator.

Good speed experts say that this is exactly the thing… even when it is safe, don’t give in to pressure, because if you slow down you can make a mistake… said:

“I am disappointed with today’s outcome, but I am taking my hat off to Kale…”

Recall, Elfin Evans has done 108 rallies and is 33 years old, with 5 WRC triumphs. KALE ROVANPERA is “only” 12 years younger, has 42 world rallies in the premier class, and today he recorded his FIFTH WRC VICTORY.

When you look at the table, it is quite clear that ROVANPERA and EVANS were extremely faster than everyone else… ..they just “broke” them and gained an advantage of a huge TWO MINUTES!

They were the best on the speed that brings extra points, on the “power stage” Rovanpera, Sordo, Tanak, Neuville and Evans… that exam was stopped for about 5 minutes because he flew off the track Finn Temu Suninen with “Hyundai”, in the WRC 2 class, so he lost an almost certain victory – and he had an advantage of 57.4 seconds before the start of the exam – which is not very clear, and the statement about insufficient perception of the GREAT DIFFERENCE could be applied. , which requires far better self-control. When I think about SUNINEN’s inexplicable move, I remember some of our rally masters, but I would not like to name them.

So much for Rally Portugal 2022 do .to read about Sardinia, Italy, June 2-5.
