    Sorry for Tänak and Ogier falling to technical problems. If Evans secures at least 3rd-4th place finishes from next rallies, he would be champ. Has anyone ever been champion after winning only 2 rallies in season and 3 rallies over whole career?

    Worth remembering...

    IF @ypresrally
    is the final round of WRC 2020 and it goes down to the wire to decide who becomes champion - EVA, OGI, TÄN and ROV have never contested the event.

    @thierryneuville
    has on eight occasions.

    In 1986 Kankkunen won Sweden, Acropolis and New Zealand. Before that he had only won twice in Africa.

    When counting wins, it's better to use percentages because seasons have different number of rallies (and number of rallies you can count to your result). Two rallies out of seven is is 28%. In a 14-round season that would mean four wins.

    Additionally, Ogier won the title in 2017 with only two wins.

    In Sardegna will be very bad to be first on the road, in Ypres very good to be first on the road.

    Besides wins you have to be consistent in championship to win it and that’s what Evans has done so far.

    None zero point rallies for him whilst Neuville has two, Tänak also basically two and Ogier one.

    Like Antti said, best example from recent years is 2017 with Ogier with just 2 wins but very consistent points scoring.

    Ott had 6 wins last year if I remember right but besides wins he was very consistent too, well actually only the car let him down and one puncture at Corsica

    I think and hope that the two last rallies will be epic! Evans just can't cruise around and win the championship. Ogier, Tänak, Neuville, Rovanpera will be all pushing him. And if those 4 stay ahead of him in Sardgena + Hyundai's third driver, then it is all open in the last rally!

    the epic would be Evans to collect 0 or little points to Sardegna,and go to the last rally 4 drivers with little points difference.

    I have every respect towards Evans, he is doing great work. Only sour spot is that Tänak and Ogier suffered mechanicals. If they had suffered punctures, then i would say this is at least partly their own fault. In fair world they should still have 3-way battle going. In short season like this, mechanicals sway the results too much, not much of a season to make up the points lost.
