Toyota GAZOO Racing World Rally Team driver Ott Tänak is on a mission to take the win on Rally RACC – Rally de España this weekend.

The Estonian, who lies 21 points behind championship leader Thierry Neuville following a DNF on Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, knows that he has to rely on his rival’s problems if he is to take his first World Drivers Championship.

Speaking ahead of the mixed surface event, Tänak said: “I am looking forward to driving again in Spain. We still have a chance in the drivers’ championship and we are not going to give up.”

“In a way it is more straightforward for us: we just have to win the last two rallies and see what happens. I can be confident about our performance on both gravel and asphalt, as we have been strong on both surfaces recently.”

RallyRACC – Rally de España takes place this weekend, with Tänak looking for his fifth win of the season and potentially his four win in the last five events of the 2018 WRC.
