I don't. Great on tarmac but pretty average on the loose stuff & snow.

I'd imagine this makes fairly uncomfortable reading for Latvala, it's almost like a driver evaluation this.

Not bad, he'll compete while Mini is resting, what better for him and is good driver, Ford will benefit.

May be the rumours are true, JML will drive for VW 2013, Sordo for Ford and this is his test drive perhaps. Poor Minis, who will drive them then?

I dunno, Malcolm's history shows that he will promote Mads or Tanak before he gets a non ford driver in.
The only time I can remember him bringing in a 3rd party is when he tried bring Duval back for selected outings.

Just wondering... If JML is supposed to have been talking to VW for a seat in 2013 and Petter's on a one year contract only, have Ford maybe mentioned pulling the plug on their involvement and investment in the WRC if they don't have a nice trophy in the cabinet at the end of the season.
Dani has nothing to lose if this story is true as the chances of Prodrive doing a full season in 2013 are looking slim. Maybe he's hoping he can show what he can do and maybe get a foot in the door for a 2013 drive if Ford are still around.
Or maybe there's some cash going Prodrive's way for this so they can buy a PS3 and Dirt 3 for Kris Meeke to keep match fit
