Hyundai Motor Sport at the Rally Mexico

Welcome to round three of the 2018 FIA World #Rally Championship in #Mexico – and to a reinvigorated and rejuvenated #hyundaishellmobisworldRally Team following our first victory of the season in Sweden last month. #Rally Sweden was a fantastic #event for our team and it was a great feeling to score our eighth overall win in the #WRC as well as our ninth double podium. After the disappointments of Monte Carlo, we really needed to fight back and score a good haul of points – and that’s just what we did to currently lead the Drivers’ and Manufacturers’ championships. Thierry and Nicolas were on top form all weekend in Sweden and thoroughly deserved their win – the seventh of their #WRC career so far. As a team, we performed strongly and this was reflected in our 1-3-5 result. Congratulations also to Andreas and Anders on their maiden podium with our team, the first of many we hope! Hayden and Seb also had a strong weekend to finish in a fighting fifth, despite their late drama on the Power Stage when they had a small off and suffered an engine stall. I have said many times that the competition in today’s #WRC is the toughest and closest it has been for many years, so we cannot take what happened in Sweden for granted. #Rally #Mexico offers a completely different set of challenges, so the battle lines are being redrawn. And for this #event we welcome Dani and Carlos back to the team, who I know will be looking to score a top result. We enjoyed our victory and double podium in Sweden, plus the positive all-round performance for the team. We look forward to more of the same for Hyundai Motorsport during this exciting sseason.
