Toyota Gazoo Racing is knocking at the door of Mads Ostberg


The Rally RACC Catalunya and the days subsequent to the appointment in Salou have become a hotbed of testing and rumors around Toyota’s Gazoo Racing and M-Sport. The Finnish band in addition to confirm to Juho Hänninen as its first pilot is doing a new test with the Toyota Yaris WRC in Almeria, , while M-Sport has taken their Ford Fiesta RS WRC 2017 with the always fast sections Finnish. The presence of Ott Tanak in these test and the repeated absence in the test of the new Ford Fiesta Mads Ostberg have woken up, all alarms.

In this aspect, and as explained by ‘AutoHebdo’ and ‘Autosport’ parallel, Mads Ostberg would have on the table an offer from Toyota Gazoo Racing for the season 2017. With Juho Hänninen has been confirmed and with Esapekka Lappi by post, the team led by Tommi Mäkinen there is plenty of experience and have Mads Ostberg would be a great incentive for a computer that will be used the next year to continue the development of the Toyota Yaris WRC. However, Otsberg has piloted the Subaru Impreza, the Ford Fiesta RS WRC and the Citroën DS3 WRC in the last ten years.


An option that seems that has already been drawn in the past, but that is
has finished forge in the meeting that maintained Morten Ostberg and representatives of Toyota in the Rally RACC, as
to strike ‘AutoHebdo’. An interest that also would explain the non-inclusion of
Mads Ostberg in the test which has made M-Sport
with the new Ford
Fiesta RS WRC and in which they have been involved not only Ott Tanak, but
also Eric Camilli or the private Martin Prokop. In any
case, Mads Ostberg must decide whether to stay with M-Sport or sign for Toyota in the coming weeks.

Be that as
however, the eventual movement of Mads Ostberg to Toyota Gazoo Racing
would lead to a series of movements in the string in M-Sport, the whole time
sources ‘Autosport’ dan sure Ott Tanak will be driving one
the Ford Fiesta RS WRC 2017 M-Sport with Michelin tires

prepared british, which would explain the large number of
miles is doing with the car. If it keeps Camilli
in the equation for the budget that you can provide to M-Sport, this movement
could lead to Elfyn Evans to occupy the seat of the Estonian driver in
