”My goal is a bit different than in the past. I have done my career and my focus now is on the team and our development rather than outright results. I am pleased to have Thed involved, he trusts me and I trust him. There is no doubt that he is a great driver, I know because I spent the season with him last year,” said Muller.
”I am excited to be back for the 2018 season, especially with Yvan – we had a great cooperation last year. To race together with him in the new regulations is truly motivating and inspiring. We have a lot of new things to learn and the competition is hard, but my goal is always to win,” said Thed Björk.
The team is currently awaiting delivery of two new Hyundai i30 N TCR race cars and will start a test programme shortly after in preparation for the WTCR ? FIA World Touring Car Cup season start in Morocco on April 7-8th.
”This is our third programme alongside LMP3 and GT4, something that will mean a great challenge for the team to expand for. But I am looking forward to the challenge both as a driver and as team owner,” said Yvan Muller.
