Neuville to test the hybrid Hyundai i20N in Alps this weekend

Thierry Neuville will test the Rally1 car of Hyundai in France this weekend after his latest test in Frankfurt.

Hyundai Motorsport rescheduled a test for Neuville which was held at team's private site near Frankfurt yesterday and was successfully completed, but Martijn Wydaeghe was not there as he is still recovering from his collarbone surgery.

The mechanics of Hyundai managed to repair the damaged chassis of i20N after the accident Neuville had on December 4th during his tests in France.

However, the Korean team will move back to French Alps this weekend and Neuville will continue his preparations for next season's Rallye Monte Carlo having Julien Vial as his co-driver.

Finally, it must be mentioned that Toyota drivers are currently in Alps to test their new car for this event and it was Kalle Rovanpera's turn today as Takamoto Katsuta, Sebastien Ogier and Elfyn Evans have completed their tests.
