Hansen had a difficult day yesterday in Latvia, but that did not stop him from taking home the victory in today's rain. After winning a semi-final, it was an important duel in the finals between Timmy Hansen and Norwegian Andreas Bakkerud, who was in the top of the World Cup standings before the competition.

There Hansen showed the class and won 2,297 ahead of Finnish Niclas Grönholm in second place and 2,670 before Andreas Bakkerud. Second place for Grönholm caused Bakkerud to lose another point, and Hansen is now one point ahead of Bakkerud in the total.

On November 9, the final round of the duel between the two drivers awaits as the rally crosses to South Africa.
