    Latvala is in the WRC since forever if you still haven't figured out how mentally fragile is by now i think you have more serious problems than depression to worry about.

    Latvala is gonna be fuming. According to him, he is the clear number one and Tanak and Lappi are his wingmen.

    Nowhere. Latvala, as a true rallyman, would a) never say something as stupid and b) hardly even think like that himself. It's all made out of one interview in which JML said that it can be hard for Tänak to get familiar with Yaris. Which is completely true.

    I was saying that I'd be super disappointed if Latvala cracks like at VW again.

    Don't think you understood what I said, nor the joke behind it. Potato dog...

    While I will admit that I paraphrase him, his subtext is this is my team, I rule here. Also, he says Tanak will have to adapt so if Tanak is has more points at the end of the year he will have to admit that he made a mess of it.

    Remember his moaning at VW? If Tanak is gonna be faster he'll have a nervous breakdown. The only time he looked halfway happy was when Hirvonen was his teammate. They were level in their abilities and Loeb's might was untouchable. Eversince it has been bold claims and excuses from him.

    Never paraphrase a Finn. Never.

    The link you provided doesn't back your claim up in any way.

    That's why I said the subtext suggests he is the clear number one.

    Are you seriously telling me you don't get a passive-aggressive sentiment from his statements?

    Besides, I've been to Finland a number of times. Lovely place, lovely people but never have I ever heard anyone tell me not to paraphrase a Finn. What's the backstory of that?

    Oh yes. 100% serious. David Evans has written the story in a way it gets clicked (and I'm not blaming him, that's just the name of the game). I'm quite sure I know what JML meant, and that's just that it can be hard for Tänak to get familiar (and familiar in this context means the ability to grab the final 0,01s/km vs. competitors) with the Yaris.

    Finns usually speak their minds, there's no need to paraphrase or read between the lines. But don't take it too seriously, that was just me after few beers combined with a hard week at the office.

    Talking

    Both JML and Tanak have been in the game for a long time. I think everyone knows that there really isn’t any superiority in this team when it comes to Latvala and Tanak. This is why everyone was yapping about how Tommi will work with two top winning drivers.

    Will it be tense in the team? Hell yeah! Will JML and Tanak have issues ? You better believe it. JML will speak his feelings and Ott will say “basically we had problems”. They’re both polar opposites which is great for the team and all of us. This is what makes WRC great. When Ogier was king it was boring to watch honestly. Everyone knew they could not compete so they all lacked a bit of passion. The new cars are like Viagra for old dudes who haven’t popped a boner for years. They feel rejuvenated. Ready to win and the passion and energy is felt by the fans too. Okay maybe not the best explanation of example but you get what I’m trying to say!

    Let’s be honest here, we’re not talking about little children. These guys are the top echelon of the Motorsport world.

    This will also help Lappi immensely. Heck he might even do better since he’s the guy with zero pressure .

    Enjoy the rally. If you have to quit “watching” because JML is going to act out go watch badminton or chess

    You must know a different Latvala than I do. When did he moan or make bold claims at VW? The only time I genuinely remember he moaned was when he got stuck in Ostberg's dust. Otherwise all he's ever done is lament himself.

    Wow, it seems my phrasing was way off. It was a joke; basically it would be unbearable for me to have to see Latvala deflated again, a la 2016. I'd never stop watching the WRC, but I'd watch it in tears
