WRC » Hirvonen 'stepping back' to 'make it fun again'


Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team star Mikko Hirvonen concedes that he put too much pressure on himself in 2010 - so now in 2011, he intends to enjoy himself more and with that, he hopes, do battle for the World Rally Championship crown

Personally I hope this year will be a Ford whitewash kind of like the 70s was with the mk2 Escorts, letting the odd Ascona or TR7 V8 win here and there

Citroen had the upper hand on Ford with both their last 2 WRC Cars, the Xzara was an F2 Winner with Puras and Bugalski and Citroen just made it into a 4WD WRC Car so that was an instant success, then they had a sabatical with the C4 when Kronos run the team while they further developed the C4

Now finally we have a level playing field where both Teams have had the same time to build a new car to new Rules. Mikko and Jari have a wonderful chance to be Champions and with it bring Ford the title too

I think these cars will be a lot more fun so Mikko may bounce right back naturally. Im sure it will be the best year in a long time.
