Hyundai Launch 2023 Challenge

The Hyundai Shell Mobis WRT have officially launched their 2023 campaign today. Here’s what the drivers had to say.

Thierry Neuville: “The competition is going to be very tough again, but after a strong second half of 2022 for us, I think we can expect a more equal fight during 2023. The target remains unchanged: to win both championships.”

Esapekka Lappi: “I’ve done a couple of days testing the car, and it was a positive surprise to feel so comfortable in it so quickly. We are ahead of where I was expecting us to be and I’m looking forward to getting started.”

Dani Sordo: “The start of a new season means that everybody is equal on points, and we don’t know yet how competitive the other cars will be. I feel this could be a really good one for us; it is not so much a case of finding our feet, but continuing momentum.”

Craig Breen: “It is great to be back at Hyundai Motorsport. The car is completely new, but it feels really nice to drive. There is no reason why we can’t win the title again; all the ingredients are there to do it.”
