Cyril Abiteboul

The increase in podium finishes and the consolidation of leadership in the constructors’ championship are significant achievements for Hyundai Motorsport, which continues to demonstrate its competitiveness and determination in the world of rallying.

Hyundai Motorsport has strengthened its position in the World Rally Championship after an excellent result in Rally Portugal, with a second and third place that have propelled the team to the top of the Constructors’ Championship. The team showcased exceptional teamwork and high-level performances from its drivers, Ott Tänak and Thierry Neuville. Cyril Abiteboul, Team Principal of Hyundai Motorsport, positively commented on the rally’s progress and highlighted the importance of the achieved results.

“It has been a positive rally, with excellent teamwork and outstanding performances from both Ott and Thierry. Thierry leaves Portugal with a further advantage over Evans, something crucial in a championship where points are so hard to come by,” said Abiteboul. “Ott, on his part, is starting to gain confidence in the car, as evidenced by some very strong times that allowed him to bring home the most points of the weekend. This is very encouraging, considering the amount of gravel stages we will have to face. There is still a lot of work to do to continue maximizing his opportunities in the next six rounds. As for Dani, he contributed immensely to the points in the constructors’ standings and was the support the team needed. In the next session, we will examine what we can do to help you further improve the performance of your Hyundai i20 N Rally1 Hybrid. The results of the three teams have helped us reach the top of the constructors’ championship, so it’s an important outcome for the rest of our season.”
