Hyundai has announced that Rally Turkey's podium position for Sebastien Loeb and Daniel Elena will be their last for the team. The team have announced that their agreement will conclude and they will not continue the relationship for WRC into 2021. "We have been privileged to have their wealth of expertise and experience in our team," Andrea Adamo said. "All areas of our operation have benefitted from their know-how, directly or indirectly. "Their contribution helped us to fight for - and win - the championship last season. Their knowledge and commitment was perfectly demonstrated in the tougher rallies like Chile and Turkey. "The pandemic has meant we haven’t been able to use them as we had intended this season, but their performance in Turkey was a reminder to everyone of their ever-present ability and speed. "We wish them all the best in their next chapter and keep our doors wide open to them should they ever wish to return.” Sebastien Loeb was unquestionably grateful for the time spent with the German based team. "For me, Hyundai Motorsport gave me the best WRC car I have ever driven, and I was glad I could compete at the highest level with the latest generation of WRC cars. "Now, a new chapter will open in 2021 with Prodrive in Rally Raid but who knows for WRC; neither Hyundai Motorsport nor I want to completely close the book for good.”
