    It might just be that they earn a lot less and therefore have to work longer.

    Maybe management rather than leadership?

    This was well put by Ari Vatanen in his early autobiography book (I think it was called “Every second counts”) talking about the mistake his co-driver made at the 1985 Monte Carlo Rally and the massive range of skills these people possess, he was very complimentary as far as I remember (read the book almost twenty years ago).

    Just in time for the Mahonen interview aftermaths. The route of the 1000 Lakes Rally 1986 had only one stage over 20 kms (SS19 Ekojärvi 22,23 km) and 11 stages between 10 and 20 km, with the remaining 36 stages under 10 kms long. Even Ouninpohja was cut into two 7 km stages.
