Loquacious? Garrulous? Neither adjective is installed next to the words 'Ott' and 'Tanak' on a regular basis. But harbourside on a warm Sardinian Saturday evening, the Estonian was positively chatty.
Tanak talked freely about how things had turned around at Toyota and how things were really starting to fall into place. I even recall a mention of the words 'dream team'.
That whole 'Tanak back to M-Sport' story that had been brewing since Malcolm Wilson declared his intention to bring Tanak 'home' for 2020 looked to be getting wider of the mark with every Italian kilometre that passed beneath Tanak's dominant Yaris WRC.
