Jarmo Lehtinen, 2013

Jarmo Lehtinen (born 3 January 1969) is a rally co-driver from Finland. He is currently the co-driver to World Rally Championship driver Mikko Hirvonen. To date the pair have scored 13 WRC wins, all with the Ford World Rally Team.

Lehtinen started co-driving in 1988 alongside friend Jari Mikkola. He later partnered Marko Ramanen in the Finnish Rally Championship, and he made his WRC debut in the 1997 Rally Finland. In 1999 Lehtinen partnered Ramanen in the British Rally Championship and accompanied Jouni Ampuja to sixth in Group N in the Finnish Championship. He worked with Ampuja in the Finnish Championship for another two seasons. In 2002 he took up a new role in the gravel crew for Skoda driver Toni Gardemeister on the world championship. He also began to work with Hirvonen on international events. The pair have worked together on all their WRC outings since 2003, with Subaru in 2004 and with Ford since 2006, becoming runners-up in 2008. He won his first world rally at the 2006 Rally Australia. Lehtinen and Hirvonen will compete for Citroën in 2012.[1]

Lehtinen lives in Lahti with his wife Tanja.[2]
