NUMBERS UP FOR WRC DRIVERS

WORLD Rally Championship drivers have selected their own competition numbers for the first time, following an FIA rule change that aligns the WRC with Formula 1.

Priority 1 drivers revealed their choices at the Autosport International Show, although number 1# was reserved for Citroën’s Sébastien Ogier as the defending champion.

Other drivers will wear the following numbers this season (Hyundai’s Sébastien Loeb was not assigned a number because he is away contesting the Dakar Rally).

Citroën
(1# Sébastien Ogier)
#4 Esapekka Lappi

Toyota
#8 Ott Tanak
#10 Jari-Matti Latvala
#5 Kris Meeke

Hyundai
#11 Thierry Neuville
#89 Andreas Mikkelsen
#6 Dani Sordo
(Sébastien Loeb no number yet)

M-Sport
#3 Teemu Suninen
#33 Elfyn Evans
