run the weekend of the Swedish rally in his career in 197. MM-race and overtake the statistics of the top place liked back in the day-star Carlos Sainz .
latvala's father Jari Latvala won his own rally career group N Finnish championship in 1994.
the Boy got the early rally flies bite and began the practice of his father by acquiring the fender the car was four years old outside their home. The first race he drove a go-kart car seven years old.
Those days of the year have passed by so that Latvala will rally the history of all time the most experienced driver.
He can appreciate the achievement.
I Like statistiikasta, it is interesting to follow, Latvala said, and to remind Carlos Sainz in the name since 2005, to remain of record.
Time seemed distant to achieve the amount of WRC-start, it feels awesome. Now when it is achieved, so you feel that this is now so old, he says with a laugh.a Race more
Latvala is only 33 years old. It's not a rally driver yet age and nothing.
for Example, in the 2000 and 2002 world champion Marcus Grönholm , which makes the Swedish rally in comeback in the world cup series, drove a factory driver for the first time at the age of 31.
– When young has started, so have had much time, But do record its.
He also recalls the world series change.
at That time, when Sainz started, was driven 8 to 10 rallies per year. Rally number has over the years grown. It makes it possible, that I have been able to achieve a number of earlier than Sainz, who stopped 44-year-old. A couple have also been younger than in his time.Experience the value in
the Experience is of many different areas of management in a demanding sport of key importance.
– the rally of the difficulty is that the top access to the required experience, Latvala confirmed.
as the Youngest WORLD title is in reach Colin McRae . Helicopter crash in 2007, the dead scot was 27 years old when he drove the champion through 1995.
– Time many world championships has become that of the three ten around. It's about that experience is to have collected the first time a lot.
– in a Rally driven the same road only two times a year, and you have a largely over one hundred. You can't learn them by heart but to keep the build notes. Then need to get experience in a variety of circumstances, and grip variations. For example, the Monte Carlo rally is the first time for a really challenging competition, Latvala tells.
– MM-series supposed to go around 2-3 times in all competitions, that you get to the speed that you can drive for the win, he line.Young top
Latvala, it's great that the record comes just in Sweden, where he in 2008 took the first world cup race victory.
Then I broke that record, that I was the youngest-ever WORLD grand prix winner. It is still valid, and now in the same competition 11 years later is becoming the all-time most experienced driver.
Latvala overtook the record when concluding the late Henri Toivonen . Latvala was won in just 22 years and 313 days old.
MM-series Latvala made his debut in 2002, the all-time youngest Finnish as a driver, when his 17-year-old drove the Welsh rally in a Mitsubishi Lancerilla place 17. The competition permits to obtain a he had been driving in England licence.
for a Long time I've been a couple, a lot of is the starter, but it's all gold is missing, it's the world rally championship, Latvala said a little sadness in his voice.Title objective
the Closest WORLD title, Latvala has so far been season 2014. He won four races, had seven times on the podium and collected a career record score of 218, but lost the championship Volkswagen team mate Sebastien Ogier 49 points.
MM-silver he has reached also the period 2010 -15, as well as bronze in 2012 and -13.
Latvala is uneven in the driver's reputation – the good and the bad days, the difference has been great. On the other hand, the evenness of the fact that he has won at least one world championship race every season since 2008 and have been ten in the season championship points in the top four.
the world championship is still the goal, even though he make much noise like.
Yes, it still comes back bright. If there are no goals ahead, then usually the level goes down.
– need to have goals and strive for them. Oh, it's not, but the conditions for it is. It is more just up to you.Sweden favourite
This season avanneessa Monte Carlo rally Latvala was ranked the best Finnish fifth. MM-points, however, he is sixth when left without power stage points.
Thursday, the start of the Swedish rally Latvala has won in his career four times. It is MM-calendar in one of his favorites.
– Is definitely. I learned to drive by car to the lake on the ice and snow. It has all of the familiar elements, But to remind.
– the Goal is to be there for the tip in the gang and through it to challenge for the win. It requires a lot, but is it prepared for and download. The elements should be fine.Sequel to the mind
led by the Toyota garage did but with the last autumn-year contract extension. A long career is to continue.
I Still want to be a couple. Although the start is a lot, so age is not too much. In a rally you can be in the top always have people sex until, if the motivation is sufficient, Latvala knows.
– Purpose is to work on that got that contract extension yet.the Swedish rally in a comeback that made Marcus Grönholm tests the Toyota WRC-cannon.
