Ott Tänak Returns to Hyundai for 2024

Hyundai Motorsport has today (Wednesday) provided official confirmation that Ott Tänak will re-join the team for the 2024 FIA World Rally Championship season.

Tänak, 35, achieved nine victories whilst employed by the Korean marque between 2020 and 2022 but jumped ship to join M-Sport Ford, the team where he had started his WRC career, for the 2023 season. The Estonian, alongside co-driver Martin Järveoja, scored his second Puma Rally1 at Rally Chile Bio Bío last week. However, once he has completed this year?s remaining two rallies, Tänak is on the move again.

He will return to Alzenau-based Hyundai Motorsport to drive an i20 N Rally1 in 2024, with Belgian star Thierry Neuville - currently second in the points - also confirmed in the team's line-up. Further driver announcements are not yet forthcoming with Hyundai saying it will "take its time to explore various options for the rest of its 2024 WRC line-up."
