Rantanen shines, left wanting for more
One of the star's of Rally Finland was undoubtedly Matti Rantanen and co-driver Mikko Lukka who finished the event in fifth position with Munchi's Ford. It was a one-off outing with the team and it was a close run battle as the Finnish duo completed the 23rd and final stage just three-tenths
of a second from a charging Sebastien Ogier.

"We drove the legendary Myhinpaa special stage as good as we ever could but still we lost four seconds," he explained of stages 21 and 22. "I have no idea where we lost that time. After the stage me and my co-driver Mikko Lukka decided that we'll rally the final stage with full risk.

Entering the final stage of the rally, Rantanen held a six-tenth advantage over the Citroen Junior driver. "In Ruuhimaki I didn't have any caution as I drove over every rock which were on my driving line and I drove all but one crest with maximum speed," he said on his personal website.
"If I rally with this kind of style I would be certain that I'll lose my front wheel in some point..."

“When thinking of the whole rally my fifth position was best possible result after two professional drivers of Ford and Citroen,” he said. “However the gap for those drivers grown too big.”

Rantanen certainly has high expectations of himself and it is telling that he considers his fifth position a disappointment rather than an outstanding success.

“I'm disappointed that I couldn't rally on my own level for the whole rally,” he said. “I would like to drive some more WRC events but it depends on teams and sponsors."
