    Jouhki is Rovanperä's manager. He's supposed (and eventually gets paid) to pump him up. There's absolutely no guarantee, that whatever the manager says would have anything to do with the truth.

    That being said, I agree with the guys who've pointed out Rovanperä's reliability and also think that Jouhki is probably one of the most non-biased managers when it comes to public statements.

    poor jouhki, still lives in the era where finish managers did everything they wanted in the WRC feeding the series will garbage... then Loeb came and manufacturers realised that you have to invest into driver ability instead of managers...

    That kid is nothing special... hirvonen and latvala did a lot more in his age and we see how that ended... hope his father has deep pockets because he is going to need them.

    Even though you really know how to embarrass yourself, this was still pretty good.

    No-one's denying that. Too bad it has nothing to do with the subject here.

    Well, standing out by crashing might be a bit harsh. Some did and succeded. Some didn´t. Suicide mission? No, absolutely not. Loss of tactics, being beaten by almost all his lead? Yes.
    Young drivers need hard coaching. I think they failed in doing that, this time. Don´t think it was missed pace note. Just drivving too fast trying to maintain lead. Just as simple as that.

    Hope his speed will not suffer from this could have been fatal crash.

    I don't really remember well but I think that Tidemand had similar crash into the trees (or it was Lappi) maybe 2 years ago? It was pretty rough and with Skoda Fabia R5 in it's early years of development.

    He is the MOST biased. He has praised Hirvonen and Latvala as future champions. Hirvonen never was and Latvala never will be.

    We saw Ogier at previous rally,untouchable.
    At this rally he was lost.
    Maybe he was lost on the set up or maybe he simply felt he should avoid taking risks on such a rough terrain, as he was/is the series leader…

    Besides his undisputed speed, Ogier has developed a superior tactical sense, which was essential to last year title. Others may match his speed, but only he is able to mix ‘maximum attack’ and ‘safe mode’ in a series winning way.


    PS: Rovanpera is a fantastic driver and this kind of accidents is part of his learning process; still, his manager comment sounded a bit like the ‘look Mom, no hands’ joke...
