What a humble guy Latvala is targeting a podium not a win accepting his role as a number two driver for next week race. Would be nice if he would win rally Sweden, that would change the game a little, not allowing Ogier to run away with the points early in the season. More likely Latvala will suffer some technical mishaps from his car and down the order he goes. As predicted last week, coming in at 2nd, but now i could see him crossing the line in 3rd or 4th...
My final top 3:'
Ogier
Neuville- a must podium or win
Latvala

cassyo: Maybe he said that because one has to dig deep down in order to find out when JML took his last win.


The last race win in Sweden was in 2008 or 2009. I hope he was thinking that far back, different cars and competitors in those days.

Guys. He was won Sweden twice. 2008 and 2012. Its a little dissapointing that he is only speaking of a podium. It just goes to show how his confidence is battered. From years of crashes and mishaps to be well and truely beaten by his team mate last year. With his speed and 9 rally sweden starts with 2 wins, he ought to be favourite for victory. I just hope that secretly he believes this himself. Politically he may not be able to say this as Oigier would prob throw the toys out of the pram if his no.2 was talking of beating him. On this rally, I really believe that JML has the beating of Oigier. It would be great to see and a huge boost for JML.
