“I am delighted that Hyundai Motorsport has offered me the chance to return to the WRC ‘properly’ with a full-time seat for 2018 and 2019. Even before my first rally with the team, I feel that I have settled in quickly. It is clear to me that I am joining a world-class team with realistic chances of fighting for both Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ Championships. I look forward to helping achieve these goals from Rallye Monte-Carlo next year, and making my own presence felt in the drivers’ title.”
