Estonia's Ott Tanak steered his Toyota to an impressive victory on the dirt-track forest roads at the Rally of Finland on Sunday, clinching his second win of the season after leading all weekend.

Norway's Mads Ostberg in a Citroen and home hope Jari-Matti Latvala of Toyota were second and third in this eighth of 13 dates on the WRC calendar.

Tanak, who won a similar style of rally in Argentina in April, climbs to third in the world rankings but is still 46 points adrift of Belgian Thierry Neuville of Hyundai who slumped to a ninth-place finish here.

Taking his foot off the gas after watching Esapekka Lappi roll his Toyota Sunday morning, Tanak eventually won by 32.7sec.

The winner had held a comfortable lead overnight of 39 and 44sec over his two closest rivals with Sunday's racing including just four specials raced over a total of 45.72km.
