Fourmaux will start in 2024

The British team M-Sport announced on Friday that Frenchman Adrien Fourmaux would be one of its two starting drivers in 2024 (with Belgian-Luxembourger Grégoire Munster), at the wheel of a Ford Puma Hybrid.

There will indeed be a French driver starting next season in the WRC. While Sébastien Ogier will perform part-time at the wheel of the Toyota, Adrien Fourmaux will be present full-time at the wheel of the Ford Puma Hybrid, to defend the colors of the M-Sport team. The news was made official this Friday, and the 28-year-old Northerner will have the 25-year-old Belgian-Luxembourger Grégoire Munster as his teammate. “The duo represents M-Sport’s continued commitment and established history of nurturing future talents to become future rally and championship winners.

The team is very excited to continue working with Fourmaux and Munster in their quest to achieve new career milestones in 2024“, rejoices the British team. This season, Adrien Fourmaux took part in a few WRC2 races, then in the British championship which he won easily. He was rewarded with a start for the last WRC rally of the season, in Japan, but was the victim of an accident on the first day. Grégoire Munster, for his part, took part in the WRC rallies of Chile and Central Europe, and also finished 17th in the WRC2 season.

Fourmaux: “It will be a very interesting season for everyone”

“I am very happy to be back in Rally1 for 2024,” said Adrien Fourmaux, who will still be co-driven by Alex Coria (31) in 2024. Achieving this goal was the main objective of the 2023 season and I am excited to return for a full season with Puma next year. I am grateful to M-Sport, Ford and Red Bull for putting their trust in me to give me another year at the highest level and allow me to show my abilities. I enjoyed being involved in the development of the Fiesta Rally2 in 2023, and I think it will help me for the upcoming season with the Rally1 car. It will be a very interesting season for everyone, especially with the new regulations and the new points system. We have a good plan to work hard and get the best possible results, to support the team and get them back to where they deserve to be. “I am also very proud to be the only French driver to compete the entire season at the highest level of the WRC! » See you on January 25, for the first laps of the wheel in Monte-Carlo!
