Jari-Matti Latvala and Toyota Gazoo Racing, a couple in fact


The ‘silly season’ of the WRC is close to being resolved, but the
multiple options to handle the strongest rider in the championship complicates
the final decision. With all and according to ‘Autosport’, Jari-Matti Latvala would have
come to an agreement with Toyota Gazoo Racing
to become one of the
three pilots that will be at the controls of the Toyota Yaris WRC in 2017. According to
the same sources, the official announcement of the signing of Jari-Matti Latvala
will arrive on Tuesday, December 13 on the occasion of the official presentation of the
team in Helsinki
. Act followed, Latvala will be able to test out your new Toyota Yaris

In this way, Juho Hänninen and Jari-Matti Latvala will be the
spearheads of the project of Toyota
, while the two pilots
finns will have a full schedule of the Toyota Yaris WRC, something that
priori not enjoy the third pilot of the team. Although Esapekka Lappi has
all the ballots to end up occupying the third seat
, thus closing the
computer 100% Finnish, it is estimated that the third Toyota Yaris WRC will not be
available until the fourth date in the calendar of the World, or what is the
same, until the Tour de Corse which is held in April.

If we ignore the information of ‘Autosport’ that point to a contract for a year of Jari-Matti Latvala, the roster of team riders Toyota Gazoo Racing would be closed and the decision Sébastien Ogier would happen by moving to M-Sport or wait for the events around the private project that seeks to gain the Volkswagen Polo R WRC 2017, the entire time that the option of Citroën Racing seem to fade away. From their decision, the ‘silly season’ desatascará and Andreas Mikkelsen will be able to find your site, either in a private computer with the Ford Fiesta or Volkswagen Polo
