Jost Capito: Jari-Matti did exactly what we asked him to do. To finish the rally is the most important thing for us, and of course he has much less experience of the Polo R WRC than Sebastien. It was obvious to see the time differences and also to see that on the later stages Jari-Matti caught up. Unfortunately he had a puncture in the last stage which cost time but we’re very happy with the performance of them both.
They brought on Latvala with the goal of finishing rallies? Were they not paying attention at all last season? I think Petter was the only one with a worse record for DNFs.
My real problem with Loeb is just that he never makes mistakes, and never has mechanical issues. That automatically puts him on a different level than everyone else.
