Rovanpera underestimates his chances to win 2022 title in Greece

Kalle Rovanpera believes that he will not clinch his maiden WRC title at this weekend's Acropolis Rally considetring his road position on Friday and the tough conditions.

The Finn driver may become the youngest WRC champion in Greece this week if he scores 18 points more than Ott Tanak who is the main rival of the first one on the drivers' championship.

Their between gap has been reduced to 72 points after the end of Ypres Rally Belgium where Tanak won and Rovanpera scored only five points from Powerstage due to the fact that he crashed in Stage 2.

However, it must be mentioned that Rovanpera was the winner of last year's Acropolis Rally Greece which returned to WRC calendar after eight years.

"I wouldn't mind if we do it here but of course it still doesn't look like it is going to happen here so easily", Rovanpera said.

"But of course we will always try best and hopefully have a good rally this year.

"I think for us the first day will be quite tricky to open the road.

"It looks like it there will be a lot of loose gravel and really tricky.

"We will need to push quite hard to stay on the pace, so that is the plan to try and stay in the fight on Friday.

"It seems here that you really need to plan carefully what you do and also you need to take care of car and the tyres in the rough conditions. 

"It is not going to be easy".
