An unexpected season starts for Simone Tempestini, who is running this year too under the aegis of Citroën Sport. As previously announced, the Italian-Romanian driver's WRC2 championship will start at the 5th round with the Portuguese Rally and then continue with the other European races. Unfortunately, in Corsica, Citroën announced that the new C3 R5 will not be available for him in the Lusitanian land.

Simone has requested and was allowed, so as not to affect the evolution of the season, to still participate in the race with a car that was not from PSA. The Ford Fiesta Evo 2 of Keane Motorsport was therefore chosen, the team that he won the Junior WRC with in 2016. The Portuguese race is one of Tempestini's favorites and him and his co-driver Sergiu Itu will be participating trying to bring home a great result to start in the best possible way the race for the podium of WRC2 2018.
