    Nobody said it did, but I like Latvala for the same reason.

    Self criticism is dangerous. It's good they are trying to be objective with themselves and improve but it's possible to fall into a trap where the constant criticism prevents you from getting the confidence to keep everything together. If you look at the champions they all have some kind of expression related to confidence, be it aloofness, relaxation, arrogance or a sense of self entitlement.

    It remains to be seen which type Lappi turns out to be. Certainly for Latvala realistic self analysis has somewhat turned into a disabling psychosis.

    It's because he is in top sport for long time and never really achieve his main goal. He lost so many times.

    Agreed. Tremendous post.

    Lappi, Paddon and Latvala are the three most self critical drivers in the championship, IMO, and all of them have been/are incredibly quick. Lappi still has time to prove he's consistently quick but it's pretty clear it hasn't paid off neither for Latvala nor Paddon, sadly, at least not yet.

    Maybe, but he's rather cold. He'll auto critique when he makes mistakes, while the others always have something to improve according to their flustered faces.
