If you had any doubt about how serious Toyota’s WRC effort is, their intention was laid bare for all to see on the snow in Sweden recently. Embrace reality and celebrate Toyota’s victory!
Yes, Toyota is back on the WRC map! I am certain in all their pre-season projections they did not anticipate success this early. Let us see what will unfold. Latvala wants to emerge from Ogier’s shadow. He was humbled (Latvala) while at Volkswagen. He simply had no answer for prolific-winner, Ogier.
The fact that they are now on different sides of the fence, can he (Latvala) snatch some of Ogier’s thunder and deliver more than he was able to at Volkswagen?
Mexico is up now but we will reflect on Sweden. Congratulations Toyota! An interesting season lies ahead!
