Finland-born Jari-Matti Latvala has just delivered an oustanding performance by sealing his second straight Rally Finland win and third of his championship career. The Volkswagen Polo driver clinched a home victory on Sunday to secure 2nd overall in the standing as expected by few online bet fans. Sébastien Ogier (Volkswagen Polo) remains atop the leaderboard with his 182 points. Jari-Matti Latvala currently holds 93 points while Mads Ostberg (Citroen DS3) has 84 with 5 stages remaining. Ogier finished the Rally Finland 13 “7 behind Latvala. After his win at the Rally Portugal in May, it is the 2nd feat the Finn man hit this ongoing season. Mads Ostberg completed the Top 3 at 1’36 “8.
Latvala has dominated the 8th stage of the WRC on Friday with 2 “6 tiem-lead over the championship top man Sébastien Ogier. The following day, the Finn won five scratches out of eight to secure his leading position in the last 28.6 Kms track. Fans of sport betting appreciated that. On Saturday, the rain somewhat gave Ogier an opportunity to reduce the point gap between him and his Volkswagen team-mate. However, his Polo hit a roadside rock, which kept him ways behind. With a twisted wheel rim and a damaged caliper, he was forced to slow down and saw his victory wish gradually fading away.
