Rally careerEdit

He is the son of Estonian politician Toomas Järveoja, and originally a Judo competitor (he was five-time champion in Estonia).[2] Järveoja began his rally career in 2006, co-driving for several drivers, including his cousin Ken Järveoja and uncle Tarmo Järveoja, competing in the regional and national championships.[2]

In 2010, Järveoja made his debut in the World Rally Championship, co-driving for Karl Kruuda in Jordan.[3] The pair finished fifth in the 2014 World Rally Championship-2 after wins in Finland and Sweden. [4]

In December 2016, Järveoja signed a contract with M-Sport World Rally Team and formed a partnership with Ott Tänak.[5] He and Tänak claimed their first World Rally Championship victory in the 2017 Rally Italia Sardegna.[6]

From 2018, Järveoja and Tänak compete for Toyota Gazoo Racing WRT.[7] In 2019, they won in Sweden, Chile, Portugal, Finland, Germany and Wales. They were crowned the world champions in Catalunya, with one race to spare.[8]
