Jari-Matti Latvala: “That the WRC follow open is remarkable”


Jari-Matti Latvala closed the last Rally of Argentina in
fifth position
. The finn was unable to fight effectively for the podium and
however, on his return to Europe, has been satisfied. Beyond the
a result, the pilot of Toyota Gazoo Racing has praised the rapid improvement that has
reached the Toyota Yaris WRC
in gravel. In addition, Latvala acknowledges feeling
strong and be in a privileged position after five rallies. However,
Jari-Matti is the second place in the WRC with 16 points of disadvantage on
S├ębastien Ogier, orna position that acknowledges not to have had in previous years
to fight for the title.

In this aspect, Jari-Matti Latvala asserts to the official website
championship: In the last appointment of land in Mexico we were pretty
, but in Argentina we were able to compete. We arrived to be second in the
beginning, but when the race became more difficult I could not keep myself in
contact with the riders in front of me. In spite of this, the most important thing is that
we have been able to improve from Mexico
. The brakes were not a problem in
Argentina and I’m happy with the way we have managed to eliminate other
problems. it Was only our second rally on earth and I know where we can
more progress

With 11 points in Argentina, Jari-Matti Latvala remains close to S├ębastien Ogier, which is not surprising, for the finn in his first year at Toyota:That the WRC is still open is remarkable. Don’t think I have been in such a good position after five races ever. Now we need to improve on the turn, both in suspension and in the transmission, so that both work together. A little more torque also, it would help us in driving. I am waiting for the Rally of Portugal, I want to make the car more fast-paced and competitive. So I can fight for the podium“.
