“The Toy­ota is an­other one but it’s tough to pick a sin­gle car be­cause of all the dif­fer­ent Cel­i­cas.

“Gt-four was the first one, Gt-four 165. It was OK but not very good, not so re­li­able. But 185 was ready and was re­li­able. 205 was a bit too big and com­pli­cated for the ral­lies, we should have had the Corolla at that time, we would have won many things. But that was de­layed. But the Corolla was de­layed be­cause of the turbo prob­lem we had in 1995. It’s a pity as that could have been re­ally good. But it wasn’t that bad for me be­cause I got the chance to drive for Ford (1997-1998) and for Subaru (1999-2000), which was a re­ally good time. I don’t want to change a day from those days. I’ve been lucky to drive the best cars in the world.”
