Jari-Matti Latvala is a finnish rally driver. His co-driver is Miikka Anttila. He currently drives for the BP Abu Dhabi Ford Team.

Jari-Matti's first win came in 2008, his first year at the main Ford team after a two year stint with it's sister team Stobart VK Ford. He managed to win the 2008 Swedish Rally from his current team-mate Mikko Hirvonen. In that year he finished 4th after a good fight all year with Dani Sordo.

The 2009 season didn't start very well. 3 crashes from the first 4 events including a mammoth crash in Portugal, where the car rolled 17 times down a mountainside. He managed to win the 2009 Rally d'Italia Sardegna but in the next round, he crashed out on a super special stage losing his second place.
