Latvala's age shows in the errors he is prone to make. However, once he learns to hold his horses, he will be a force to be reckoned with. His approach seems opposed to Hirvonen's who spent many years building up consistent speed. It's been such a slow process that I've lost confidence in Hirvonen being really able to step it up. That's why Latvala feels so exciting in comparison. I hope he just blossomed in Sweden and takes off.

Hirvonen is a very safe driver, holding his horses. He doesnt make mistakes under pressure, but that's because he doesnt respond to any challenges by making it stick.

Latvala doesnt have the strongest head, but if he keeps driving fast and building confidence, he could become a consistent winner.
