Look at Ogier and tell me he doesn't take absolutely everything seriously, from his diet, the car setup and development, his fitness and personal training etc. Malcolm Wilson has worked with some of the most famous names in the sport and has said he's never come across a driver who pays more attention to detail than Ogier. The closest to that he said was Carlos Sainz. Tanak is probably the way he is this season after having worked so closely with Seb last season, and seeing how Ogier operates. It's clear he's learned a lot and I'm sure he's admitted that himself on many occasions iirc.

    Also as MKnight says, Latvala was well in the championship fight last year, and if you added at least a 3rd place in Poland and a win in Finland to his pts total, he'd have been in a superb position going into Germany.

    Interview seems a bit iffy for my liking or lost in translation, edited wrongly. Either that or Latvala is more broken mentally than I even thought.
    I think Latvala just sticks with his current employer interests like he had always did. When was in Ford/M-Sport he was showing with old Escort, in VW with Quattro, now in Toyota what was it - Starlet?

    It's well known that JML is a die hard rally fan at heart. He has all the old classics. He's also tech nut when it comes to cars. I went to his museum and we spent an hour talking about the old EVO 3 Group A motor, exhaust design etc... I think you will see JML driving for the rest of his life at whatever level.
