Rovanpera Focused on Head-to-Head Battle with Evans in Chile
The reigning world champion has an opportunity to seal a second consecutive world title this weekend, although the Finn rates his chances of achieving the feat as “small” heading into the gravel rally.
Rovanpera holds a 33-point lead over his Toyota team-mate Evans with 90 points remaining from the final three events of the season.
To successfully defend his world title this weekend he would need to outscore Evans by at least four points and finish no lower than fifth overall.
Battle for the World Title
Rovanpera, the current leader of the World Rally Championship (WRC), is focused on the head-to-head battle with Evans, rather than solely on claiming victory in Chile.
While a win in Chile would undoubtedly be a major boost to his title campaign, Rovanpera understands that his main priority is to outperform Evans and extend his lead in the standings.
With three events left in the season, the pressure is mounting, and every point matters in the battle for the championship.
The Gravel Rally Challenge
The upcoming rally in Chile poses a unique challenge for the drivers. The gravel surface requires a specific set of skills and strategies to navigate the treacherous terrain.
Rovanpera admits that he faces tough competition from fellow drivers who excel on gravel, making his chances of victory uncertain.
However, the Finnish driver remains determined and believes that his consistency throughout the season will give him an edge over his rivals.
As the rally in Chile approaches, Rovanpera is focused on maintaining his lead over Evans and securing as many points as possible.
While he acknowledges the difficulty of the task, Rovanpera is determined to give his best performance and showcase his skills on the challenging gravel stages.
The battle for the world title is far from over, and Rovanpera is ready to face the challenge head-on.
