    Schumi and Ogier

    Alright.....as noted first year in WRC for me as Toyota entered, so bear with me as I reference WRC drivers to F1. I asked on this Forum at one time if my perception that Jari-Matti had similar characteristics as Jean Alesi. The response was affirmative. So, I have been watching this Seb Ogier character all year, and I am wondering....Is he the Schumi of WRC? Why or why not?

    How was Alesi like Jari-Matti? I think in the sense that they are both emotional, drive with their hearts, sometimes are their own worst enemies....but at the end of the day, very talented. Maybe some untapped potential in both..... For me, both are drivers I can buy into...I think when they take the wheel, everything else go away--the fame, etc.--it just becomes about the driving.

    IMO Loeb is probably a better comparison to Schumacher in regards to the combination of talent and professionalism but also the impact on their respective championships. Ogier is like a copy of Loeb with probably a weaker psyche, possibly fundamentally, possibly due his constant comparison of himself to Loeb and his records (I assume).

    I would say the closest analog of JML would probably be Hakkinen (no surprise there). And Ogier is similar to Prost in many ways, although his personality seems to have changed a lot since he became a father. Much, much nicer guy. Then again Prost was never really as evil as people made him out to be. This is fun.

    Extremely interesting.....but I see some emotion from JML that I really didn't see from Mika. Damn, he could drive though!

    Thank you. Fabulous insight. Makes sense.
