    Hummm I wonder if he can get the little baby into a nice four wheel bonsai drift ala subie

    At least we know he is really qualified for any off track excursions to shorten the curves...

    That's awesome to hear, I am interested to see how he will do. He is a great rally driver and that requires a great deal of skill for sure.

    Once termed the fastest man alive !!!! But................

    .......he had a reputation/history of either winning the race or bringing the car back in bits and pieces. His style was to race flat out for the win. He was never known as conservative (i.e. collecting points).

    I think he will clean up in the FIA series.
