Hyundai’s full time WRC driver, Andreas Mikkelsen, is to become a co-driver to his regular co-driver, Anders Jaeger, while Hayden Paddon will contest more events outside the WRC. Mikkelsen will sit beside Jaeger on the national Norwegian Rally Championship Numedal Rally, the week after the Swedish, in a Hyundai i20 R5.   The announcement comes soon after the organisers of Rally Estonia announced that Hyundai Motorsport team driver, Hayden Paddon, is to drive a Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC in their event, which is sponsored by Shell Helix, one of Hyundai’s official team partners. Paddon’s entry on the ultra fast Estonia Rally comes at a strategic time in pre Neste Rally Finland testing work. The intrepid Andreas shared the driving with Thierry Neuville on last year’s end-of-season Monza Rally. Paddon, however, stays safely behind the steering wheel on his extra curricular events in his native New Zealand, in a special locally built right-hand drive Hyundai i20 AP4+ car.
