Reshuffling the Driver Line-Up
The South Korean marque, Hyundai, has already made changes to its driver line-up for the 2024 World Rally Championship (WRC) season. Ott Tanak will be re-joining the team alongside Thierry Neuville. However, the plans for the third and potential fourth car are yet to be revealed.
Decision Expected Before Season Finale
