Watch Tänak’s terrifying Monte crash

Video reveals full scale of high-speed incident for World Rally champion

World Rally champion Ott Tänak dramatically crashed out of fourth place on the Monte Carlo Rally on Friday morning.

This terrifying video clip supplied by Puuppola Racing Team shows Tänak’s Hyundai launching off the road at high speed after being unsettled over compressions in the preceding sequence of corners.

Tänak and co-driver Martin Järevoja got themselves out of the car unhurt, but Hyundai said they had gone to hospital for precautionary checks – which is standard procedure after such an impact.
