Jari-Matti Latvala, the former driver turned director of Toyota Racing, commented on Kalle Rovanperä’s victory, synonymous with the young Finn’s first world championship title:I would like to cry, because I’m very moved, but I can’t. It’s very important what Kalle achieved, to beat all the records and take the title, because I came close, and others too. It’s also important for Finland, because we’ve been waiting for it for twenty years. I am so grateful to him. He’s a superhero».
