Well you might be right Chris, but; he will do a Löeb and form the car around him.
Maybe too late for 14, but if Hyundai mean bussiness 15 might be a their year.

Are there anyone left in the team from the last time they were in World rallying?

Probably not, as this seems to be a new and serious effort.

Well, the old team was MSD. I doubt there is anyone from MSD in the new team. Curiously MSD has always done well whatever they did, except the Hundei thing.

Mind you one thing I have to praise them for is the driver choice. Neuville is the best on the market with loads of future potential. Combine him with Sordo and they have the asphalt drivers to beat. Sordo was useless on gravel and gives his car alternating between Juho Hänninen and Chris Atkinson. What an ace team! If this project is rubbish again, it certainly isn't for the drivers! One clever thinking maybe too: Neuville & Sordo both know the DS3 as well as the Fiesta and Hänninen did a lot of testing work on the VW.

For who is interested: The cars in Monte Carlo are

Sordo = C001 / ALZ-WR 41
Neuville = C002 / ALZ-WR 42

Interestingly another usually very good web site, why not name this very good web site, ewrc.cz (and so you see I do my own research), claims the Hyundais were Neuville ALZ-WR 30 & Sordo ALZ-WR 31. No idea where they have that info from, I believe it is ALZ-WR 42 & ALZ-WR 41!

On Ford's the info is different as well, see Ford forum!
