Tänak and co-pilot Martin Järveoja won the title with one round to spare in their Toyota. "It's difficult to say the pressure I felt this weekend, it was next level," Tänak said. "I never wanted to take risks but my mother said yesterday evening that if I want something I can make it happen. I just had to make it happen."
Thierry Neuville won the race in northeastern Spain's Catalonia region.
