What kind of racing includes running other cars off the road? Thats like driving in a demolition derby, not a stock car race.

Fantastic video. Loved Mika Hakkinen in his racing prime: faster than Schumacher I thought but not quite as consistent. Finnish sisu has been described as "ice in the belly": Example: what is the motto of Finn Air pilots? A. "We always land." Regarding rallying, Finland is a bit like Wales: not much to do or many facilities to do it in so you have to make your own entertainment. The landscape - plus farm boys' experience of mechanics - makes dirt bikes and rally/motocross viable options. James May wasn't bad either, considering his previous form!

FINNISH DRIVERS ARE NOT THE BEST !!
Canadians are BEST. If Canadians Gilles Villeneuve~Jacques Villeneuve~Paul Tracy~Patrick Carpentier~Greg Moore were given the best like Mika and Michael Ferrari or Benz and the Canadians win every time.

One of the few drivers who is loved by everyone. Even the fans of his biggest opponents like Mika. That’s rare. With Kimi too actually. Maybe it’s a Finnish thing

TBH as a finn, I can say that James driving after the competition after the crash is one of the best examples of sisu in action.
Boys and girls, always remember. If you want to win, employ a finn.

To learn drifting start by cutting donuts then open it up. Learn on dirt not tar or your tyres won't last very long.

Considering James May himself said in a newspaper interview (Sunday Times if I remember correctly) that he reckons about only 5% of the footage that's made out to be the hosts is actually them I highly doubt any of those corners were actually James May driving. It takes hours and hours of practice to be able to flick a car out that well. Fortunately I'm actually into cars so I know this, unlike people who watch Top Gear.
The Flying Finn and Captain Slow in a merc driving and drifting! Fact: 100% of Finnish people who already has a driver's license stick with manual. If you can't drive a manual on your driving tests, it's a flop. I like you Mika!
