Official: Hyundai Motorsport signs a new three-year contract with Shell

Hyundai Motorsport announced today that the team will continue its cooperation with Shell for three more years in World Rally Championship.

The partnership between Hyundai Motorsport and Shell began in 2014 when the Korean brand entered in World Rally Championship for the second time in its history.

Since then, Hyundai Motorsport has managed to secure many victories and podiums in WRC as it uses lubricants that are made by Shell and offer reliability and performance to the i20.

"Shell has been with us since the very start of our WRC journey", the Hyundai Motorsport President, Sean Kim, said.

"It is testament to the strength of our working relationship that we can extend the partnership for three more years. 

"While our two companies share a corporate relationship, our WRC collaboration has technical development at its core. 

"We have been through two major regulation changes in recent years, the first in 2017 and again this season. 

"Shell has been with us every step of the way. 

"They played a key part in our two title successes, and we’ve been pleased to carry on the winning partnership into the new hybrid era. 

"This is far more than just title sponsorship of the Hyundai Shell Mobis World Rally Team, it is a true technical collaboration".

On the other hand, Dani Sordo said: "I have been with Hyundai Motorsport since 2014, so I have seen first-hand the way in which the team works in partnership with Shell. 

"When we compete on the limit, we must find every tenth-of-a-second we can. 

"The evolution of our cars over the years has been helped by this technical co-operation between these two companies who understand what it takes to find performance – and deliver it when it is needed. 

"We cannot score podiums and victories like we did in Sardinia recently without such a partnership".
