Seriously. I am beyond frustrated with Jari-Matti.

This is what I mean, Latvala 40 points behind Loeb already... Obviously a gap that can be closed. But Solberg is only 19 behind. Needs to cut out errors.

It's always the same excuse with JM. Same thing happened in Monte Carlo, he got "distracted" because he was looking for ice and didn't listen to the notes. The boy just can't drive and focus at the same time :<>:

Don't go down so fast :hug:
Dunno, maybe he feels the responsibility of being officially the number one driver of his team?

I read yesterday a guy who knows a lot about rallying pointing out something that people often forget: there are two people inside that car. Jari-Matti was driving too fast when he didn't have anything to win and much to lose, but they have the splits inside the car and Anttila should have also told him to go slower. I think Miikka also has a bit of responsibility in this fiasco.

Sleenster, thank you very much for the pictures! I'll download them tonight. :) :hug:

Let's hope that Jari-Matti will have more luck, self-confidence and concentration in the coming rallies. Yes, Miikka should also concentrate more. :) :pray: :pray:

Whether its him or a combination of him and his co-driver, its just not coming together for them :(

I dunno, I've been seeing the same kind of mistake over and over again it's hard not to get demoralized :confused:
