That's an amazing statistic, fair play to the drivers for holding their nerve with this on their mind when they were the only ones in a rally after another driver retirement.
Credit to mikko for being competitive and finishing when jml crashed out so many times. Also credit to jml for finishing also with this in the back of his mind, especially in Finland when he won with Mikko crashed out. Nerves of steel

It is a great achievement and full credit to them, although it has been made slightly easier in recent years for them thanks to the Rally 2, aka SupeRally regulations. Wonder how many times that has helped keep the record intact...
