Hyundai unveils Dani Sordo’s new weapon

The one who gives first …Hyundai was the first team to showcase its new car for the 2022 season, the i20 N Rally1. The Korean team releases mechanics and colors for the contest that starts next week at the Monte Carlo rally. The new weapon of Dani Sordo and his companions, Ott Tanak, Thierry Neuville and Oliver Solberg, for the start of the hybrid era that takes off this year.

The Cantabrian, who does not race in Monte Carlo but will do so in other tests of the season together with Cándido Carrera, has acknowledged: “For me it will be a very special year as we enter the new era of hybrids. There are many new items, so it will be a great challenge for everyone. Cars will improve performance and be fast, something we’ve already seen in testing. Fans can already see and hear in some rehearsal videos that the sound of the car is also incredible. I think it will be a great year for the World Cup. I am especially happy to share the third car with Oliver and to work with all my teammates. They are like a family to me, and I really want to fight for the best results we can to regain the brand championship. “

With the position vacated by Andrea Adamo still unfilled, team principal Julien Moncet explained that “we have welcomed the technical challenge of the new hybrid era of the World Championship. It promises to be a step into the unknown for all teams, but we are confident that we have done the best job possible with our Hyundai i20 N Rally1. The main objective has been to combine the internal combustion engine and the plug-in hybrid unit, getting all the components to work together harmoniously within the chassis. We have tested the car in different scenarios and terrain to collect the most data in real time. Our simulation test in October put the car through a representative experience of a real rally weekend, and from that we have been able to develop it further before its debut. The level of performance of the car will only really be known when we get to the specials of the rally in front of our competition.
