    Hyundai WRT

    Hyundai WRT does not have own thread like the other teams.

    Do they have a plan of using 4 WRC cars, or maybe promote the R5 with two drivers alternating on using R5 and WRCar in 17?

    I think they have a winning car, but Paddon's performance is not what they expected. Also, I guess they have concerns about Newville's reliability. In short, they need another top driver to get the points they need. My guess is 4 WRC cars.

    I agree Abbring was already out of the current Hyundai picture, but a switch to Touring Cars appears to make it final. Plus the fact they are having Mikkelsen test also put another nail in the coffin...

    He posted a short gif of being behind the wheel of a Hyundai WRC on his Instagram this tuesday, so he is still doing some work there.
