Happy Birthday, Francois Duval!

We haven’t seen much of the Belgian this year, but let’s hope he’ll have more WRC in his 26th year. So, on with the appreciating!

Gotta love…

how he sticks his tongue waaay out when the stage gets twisty.
how he’s quite shy with his English, but sucks it up and talks to the reporters anyway (sometimes).
his cool French name…Francois. Sounds a heckuva lot better than Frank. Sorry to any Franks I’ve just offended.
the almost comedic way he was destroying Xsaras in early 2005. (We got to saying, “he pulled a Francois!”)
then how he shaped up and started getting great results. Like the win in Australia!

I hope he gets to drive more rallies and hone his art, because there’s talent there. Happy birthday, Francois!
