Q&A: Mikko Hirvonen - Ford: EXCLUSIVE.

Obviously the next event is Finland and that is a special one for you as your home round. What do you think you can achieve there?

MH:
I can't wait to go there. I go to Finland for the first time as the championship leader and I definitely want to try and win it. It would be my first time [if I do win there]. Hopefully I can keep Sebastien behind and get more points than him.

Crash.net:
The fans should give you a great reception there I am sure.

MH:
Yeah, it will be fantastic.

Crash.net:
Looking to the end of the season, how confident are you that you will be able to fight for the title and even win it?

MH:
It is going to be really exciting. It is 50:50 - anything can happen. There are four gravel rallies and I know I am going to be strong on those events. If I do well on the tarmac rounds too there is a chance.
