Happy Birthday, Jarmo Lehtinen!

Time to show some lovin’ to the codriver to Mikko Hirvonen. Or rather, Mikko Hirvonen is the driver for Jarmo Lehtinen. He turned 38 on January 3rd, so our gift to him is some gushy appreciation.

Why do we love Jarmo? Because

…he always puts in a flawless performance as one of the world’s best codrivers.

…he reads those pacenotes with such energy!

…he always has a genuine smile on his face. He seems like a great guy.

…it’s wonderful to see the true friendship he has with Mikko. They really entertain whenever they appear on AXN’s Shakedown. Like when he made a green plastecine snowman that symbolized how much he believes in Mikko’s potential. (“That’s Mikko, on the podium, on Sunday!”)

…along with Mikko, he’s really risen to the occasion after landing the works drive at Ford in 2006. If I were to put money on something in the WRC, it’d be that Jarmo and Mikko will be world champions one day.
