Ott Tänak landed his second straight Neste Rally Finland victory in a Toyota Yaris after seeing off determined challenges from team-mates Jari-Matti Latvala and Kris Meeke in the fastest round of the season,said WRC in a bulletin.

The Estonian finished  25.6sec clear of Esapekka Lappi, who showed a welcome return to form in his Citroën C3. Latvala ended a further 7.6sec behind in third.

Tänak won the live TV Wolf Power Stage to claim five bonus points. Thierry Neuville scored four in second in a Hyundai i20 with team-mate Andreas Mikkelsen taking three points in third. 

Sébastien Ogier, driving a C3, and Latvala took two and one point respectively.
