Jari-Matti Latvala already test Toyota Yaris WRC 2017


All roads lead to Rome and in Toyota Gazoo Racing, it was only a matter of time the two fringe open that had the team Tommi Mäkinen is entrelazaran. With Jari-Matti Latvala hired to lack of announcing officially his move and with a large part of the team completing one of the last test of their World Rally Car on the tarmac of the island of Corsica, the image logic has been tyor. Jari-Matti Latvala has climbed for the first time the Toyota Yaris WRC 2017 in a test in which in addition the team is evaluating a new rear wing.

After three days of testing with Juho Hänninen at the wheel, the new Toyota driver has taken over from his fellow countryman at the wheel of the Toyota Yaris. An expected image that has been captured by Christophe Meynieu and we can play thanks to the partners of ‘Planetemarcus’. All in all, the recruitment of Jari-Matti Latvala and his co-driver Miika Anttila will not be official until next Tuesday, December 13, on the occasion of the presentation of the project of Toyota’s Gazoo Racing in the WRC, an event that will take place in the Finnish town of Helsinki.


Without more data on the sensations of
Jari-Matti Latvala
at the controls for his car in 2017, this test
Finnish with a monkey neutral color does no more than clarify in some
so the ‘silly season’ of the WRC. However, Toyota Gazoo Racing has completed
its roster of pilots
with Juho Hänninen, Jari-Matti Latvala and also Finnish
Esapekka Lappi. All in all, the hiring of the champion WRC2 has not been officially announced, much Lappi is
fired this week from his fellow Skoda Motorsport
, mark
he has campaigned in recent years.

In this way, and with a payroll of pilots 100% Finnish in
, all eyes are on Sébastien Ogier. The
four times champion of the WRC must choose between M-Sport, Citroën or wait for the
possible private project around in the Volkswagen Polo R WRC 2017. While
this last pathway seems to be less secure and the option of Citroën Racing has
deflated in recent days, at M-Sport are doing a great effort
for hire Sébastien Ogier
, and even Malcolm Wilson is trying to
to convince Ford to re-provide the official support to the team.
