The rise of WRC star Esapekka Lappi is inextricably linked to Janne Ferm who has been the co-driver at Lappi's side since 2010. Together they made the jump from national events in Finland, home of rallying, to the international scene.

Ferm's father was also a co-driver, so it was no surprise that after starting his sporting career on the football pitch, Janne made the switch to rallying.

He got his first taste of competition at Finland's Lånsirannikko Rally in 2005, and drove for a handful of different drivers in 2009 before he joined forces with Lappi the following season.

A dominant national campaign in 2012 earned the pair a contract with Skoda and championships followed at both European and WRC 2 level. A switch to Toyota's new WRC squad in 2017 led to a sensational first win at WRC level, on home ground in Finland, and underlined their championship-winning potential.
