Norwegian driver, Andreas Mikkelsen, is content to hold off his pending WRC return until there is a manufacturer to invest in him. “I do have money to invest in my career,” the Norwegian, 31, told DirtFish. “But I won’t pay for a drive if I don’t see a way forward with that car or that team. I am willing to invest if there’s a future there – there must be some kind of an opening. "It’s not easy to rent a car right now, so maybe we wait until next year and be ready for 2022. "The last couple of years were difficult with Hyundai results-wise and for me with the car. But I know I can still do it and I know I have a lot to offer.

Andreas Mikkelsen has struggled in a Hyundai i20 WRC that "won't turn in".

“It’s very clear the Hyundai is a car made for Thierry Neuville," he stressed. "It was a tricky car for me to drive, especially on tarmac. "But I take some confidence from knowing that I adopted my style from Sébastien Ogier and he adopted his style from Sébastien Loeb – and when Loeb came to Hyundai he was struggling to drive it on tarmac as well. “Give me a car that turns in [well] and I will be right back there.”
