Q&A: Marcus Gronholm - EXCLUSIVE.

Mikko Hirvonen, your team-mate, really seemed to find his feet at the end of the season - will that help or hinder you? Is he a contender for the title?

MG:
I think he has a good chance to take the title - why not? I am sure he will be strong and tough to beat this season. But let's wait and see what he can do.

Q:
Do you expect Petter Solberg and Subaru to be back on it?

MG:
I think Petter will be good again. I am sure the Subaru will be better and they have changed the tyres - they are on BFGoodrich tyres as well now. He will be fighting up there again.

Q:
What's the overall aim for 2007 and what's your strategy going to be?

MG:
There is only one goal for me - to win the title. That is my number one aim. As for my strategy, if I can't win, I have to be second. There can be no retirements, no problems - that is the only thing we can do to beat Sebastien because he is always at the finish. That is the problem he is extremely consistent and we have to do the same.

Q:
Thanks Marcus - and good luck in 2007.
