WRC Finland: Breen podium hopes evaporate after costly mistake

Estimated read time 1 min read

The M-Sport Ford driver started Saturday sitting in fifth position, some 35.6s adrift of rally leader Ott Tanak (Hyundai) but was in contention with the front runners throughout the fast gravel event.  However, Breen’s rally unravelled on Saturday’s Stage 12, held in treacherous wet conditions after the forecasted rain finally hit the Jyvaskyla region of Finland. The Irishman approached a fast crest slightly off line which resulted in his Ford Puma hitting a boulder hidden in the undergrowth as the car landed.
