The reason he has to keep moving over for mikko is Mikko is more consistent and therefore has more points than him. Mikko is level on points with Loeb now. There was no point in him pushing hard to beat jml and risking a mistake. To have the same number of points as loeb, with all his victories whatever way you look at it is good going

Well his consistency is still not there, there's no denying that.
2007 crashed almost every event (fair enough, 1st yr)
2008 lots of mistakes 'black august', or whichever month it was. 58 jml, mh 103pts
2009 jml 41, mh 92pts
2010 171 to mikko's 126 (good yr)

From a team perspective mikko is the best bet, but I rather latvala. Hopefully he will stop making mistakes all the time though!

Jari-Matti is a real team player. When asked to do his best for the Ford team and allow Mikko past, he did this in such a way as not to spoil his stage times, and did it all with a smile. You won't get this at Citroen. Jari-Matti's time to be no.1 will come soon, a strong start next year is all that is needed.
Well done Jarri-Matti.
