Adrien Fourmaux has secured a full-time seat with the M-Sport team next season. Next season will be Fourmaux’s first full drive in the WRC.
The 26-year-old Frenchman was strongly linked with a contract extension for next season as he tested the new Ford Puma Rally1 multiple times. However, until today, nothing was officially confirmed.
Fourmaux made his debut at the top level in rallying at Rally Croatia last season where he scored a career-best finish with a fifth-place overall.
He eventually drove eight of the 12 rallies in 2021, partly because Teemu Suninen, with whom he shared the second car, left the M-Sport team at the end of August this year.
Adrien Fourmaux: “I am very happy to announce I will continue my journey with the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team in 2022! An entire season is waiting for me with the M-Sport Ford Puma Hybrid Rally 1 which is a pleasure to drive. I am so proud of this, it is a very significant moment for me when I remember that I discovered rallying with the M-Sport Fiesta R2J back in 2017.”
M-Sport completes WRC 2022 line-up
M-Sport was the last team to finalise its line-up for the upcoming WRC season. Fourmaux will join fellow full-time drivers Craig Breen and Gus Greensmith on all events of the championship. M-Sport also announced that nine-time WRC champion Sébastien Loeb will join the British squad for at least next month’s season opener at Rally Monte Carlo.
