it Is the most logical step. Lorenzo Bertelli shuts down the computer Fuckmatié, the private training that has underpinned the project in the WRC in recent seasons. As announced on his personal Twitter account, the goal of this movement is nothing other than the recalar in the rows of M-Sport. In this way, the Italian will face its second season with a World Rally Car in the formation of Cumbria, in principle, as a third pilot and to be the cornerstone of a ‘B’team. This confirmation comes between the questions of continuity that has offered M-Sport.
Lorenzo Bertelli came to the WRC in the 2011 season and from then on, your bet for the championship has been increasingly serious. In fact, his progression has been quite rapid and in two years went from the Lancer EVO and Subaru Impreza vehicles RRC and R5. His first big break was in 2014 when he made an almost complete in the category WRC2, getting their first points on the Rally of Italy-Sardinia at the end of the ninth. After finishing third in the category, in 2015, has competed with a Ford Fiesta RS WRC private, in a year of learning and ups and downs.
The collaboration between Lorenzo Bertelli and M-Sport is a great solution for both parties. The british group received an injection of budget to cope with the season 2016, something important, since she still has not confirmed if it will be a complete program or to prioritize the development of the Ford Fiesta RS WRC from 2017. For his part, the young Italian rider wins in stability to be able to compete with a World Rally Car maintained and prepared by the M-Sport, which does not cease to be a warranty on a technical level and also a relief staff, logistics and other aspects.
