As the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team embarks upon the new hybrid era of the World Rally Championship, check out M-Sport鈥檚 鈥楺uick Facts鈥 ahead of 2022 Rallye Monte Carlo:
The new season marks the beginning of the hybrid era and the launch of a new car with its striking electric-inspired livery, and the team at M-Sport are excited for the challenges ahead and the promise of a competitive season.
This year鈥檚 Rally1 cars house a 100kW hybrid unit coupled to a 1.6-litre turbocharge internal combustion engine that uses 100% renewable fuel for the first time in the sport鈥檚 history.
The traditional season opener will take place over four days, with the service park for this year based throughout the event in the Monaco harbour area.
The added challenge of using hybrid in competition for the first time is further enhanced with no mid-day service point on any of the event days.
2022 sees Irishmen Craig Breen and Paul Nagle head-up the M-Sport team alongside Adrien Fourmaux and Alexandre Coria and, Gus Greensmith and Jonas Andersson.
Nine-time World Rally Champion S茅bastien Loeb will also join M-Sport鈥檚 ranks with Isabelle Galmiche as his co-driver currently as a one off drive on the iconic season opener.
The team will enjoy a diverse range of experience as young, fresh talent is combined with the knowledge of the sport鈥檚 most decorated driver.
Throughout the 2022 season, the M-Sport and Ford will be celebrating 25 years of partnership and competing in the FIA World Rally Championship. This landmark anniversary has seen the team take three manufacturer鈥檚 titles for Ford and a combined total of seven FIA world titles when including Drivers鈥 and Co-Drivers鈥 titles. The pairing has also claimed 61 victories and a record breaking 268 consecutive points scoring events to date.
Team Quotes
Rich Millener, Team Principal, M-Sport Ford World Rally Team, said:
鈥淭here has been a huge amount of anticipation leading up to Monte-Carlo, both internally and from the fans, so we鈥檙e really excited to finally get out there and show everyone what we have been working on so hard over the past 18 months. An exceptional amount of work has been put in to get the cars ready to rally, and of course there are going to be challenges when you鈥檝e got a new car, but we鈥檙e feeling very happy with the position we are in as we head into the first event of the year.
鈥淲e鈥檙e really happy and excited about our line-up for this season; Craig joining us for his first full season has obviously been significant and he has played a big role in testing the car and providing feedback to the team. We鈥檙e pleased to be keeping on Gus and Adrien for full seasons as well as they gain more experience in WRC and I expect them to be challenging for some great results during the season. S茅b Loeb joining us is a dream come true for many at M-Sport, and we know all the other drivers will get to benefit from his experience in Monte Carlo. We have done all we can to put us into the best position possible for the season opener, now it鈥檚 down to our crews to show us what they can do!鈥
Sebastien Loeb
鈥淚t’s a radical change of scenery after spending three weeks on the Dakar Rally but it’s still very exciting to be at the start of the Monte Carlo Rally, especially with the WRC鈥檚 new hybrid era.
鈥淚’m also proud of this collaboration with Malcolm’s team, working with them has been talked about throughout my career but never quite managed to happen, so thank you all, M-Sport, Ford Performance and Red Bull for finally making this happen on such an amazing event.
鈥淔or this rally, I will certainly be less prepared than the other drivers but the feeling with the Puma Hybrid Rally1 was immediately very good and everything just came together. I am looking forward to having fun this weekend with Isabelle, my new co-driver, and the whole M-Sport team.鈥
Craig Breen
鈥淚t is always something very special competing on Rallye Monte Carlo, but to be doing it for the M-Sport Ford World Rally Team, is a dream come true! The team has done an unbelievable job building and developing the Puma Hybrid Rally1 and it really shows. It is by far the best rally car I have ever driven and with the addition of the hybrid unit, it is going to add another dimension to the rally. Paul and I are relishing the challenge and are really looking forward to the year ahead with M-Sport and Ford.鈥
Adrien Fourmaux
鈥淔or Rallye Monte-Carlo, we will try do do our best, feel the car and understand its level of performance compared to the others. It will be the first time here in the top category of the WRC, I have been here previously in the Fiesta Rally2, my first appearance was already a top ten overall finish! I love these roads, I have performed quite well in the past so I have good hopes. By the way it’s a new era for everyone so we’ll need the perfect match between the car’s reliability and driving skill to perform well until the end of the rally. We hope to deliver the best result as we can, everything is possible!鈥
Gus Greensmith
鈥淚鈥檓 excited to be a part of the 2022 M-Sport Ford World Rally Team as we head into the most significant rule change in WRC history. The team has done a great job developing the new car, and I feel really comfortable driving it. We鈥檙e all confident the car should be a lot more competitive than recent years, which will hopefully give us more opportunities to fight near the front. I was happy with my improvements last season, and I want to build on that going into 2022. I was within a second of my first stage win last year, and I feel that with the new package, this is definitely an achievable goal, and we also want to try to push for our first podium as well. Monte Carlo has always been a tricky opener for the championship, but I have done the rally a few times now, and with the new car feeling so good, I am really looking forward to the challenge. It will be essential to build the speed throughout the weekend, especially with this being Jonas and I鈥檚 second rally together. Thanks again to all the team for all the hard work they have put into the Puma Hybrid Rally1, and I hope we can repay them with a good result in Monte.鈥

#WRCHybrid 馃嚥馃嚚 馃寧聽 WRC HYBRID A NEW ERA BEGINS! 馃嚥馃嚚 馃寧
WRC hybrid: a new era begins!聽
We have waited for a long time, now they are ready to pounce on the roads of Rally Monte-Carlo. The 2022 edition, from January 20 to 23, will be historic in more than one way: a new generation of rally cars, the brand new hybrid WRC1s, using exclusively synthetic or ecological fuels, will allow the World Rally Championship (WRC) to show a good example of what is possible today, thanks to the investments of major manufacturers 鈥 and the talent of engineers. The presentation ceremony of the three Official WRC Tams took place on this Saturday evening. The Toyota GR Yaris Rally1, Hyundai i20 N Rally 1 and the Ford Puma Hybrid Rally 1 were unveiled.
Three years of commitment by Toyota, Hyundai and M-Sport Ford
The three manufacturers and teams officially entered in WRC have signed a three-year commitment to develop and enter hybrid cars, which is a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the creation of the World Rally Championship in 1973 at the he glorious time of Alpine-Renault and Lancia, among other legendary manufacturers.
Testing of the new cars continued in December, in northern Europe and southern France, and drivers were very favorably impressed with the new machines, for which the development costs of all the new technologies put in place were shared equally between the manufacturers and the FIA, with three obvious priorities: safety, cost management and sustainability.
Announced in 2019, the introduction of hybrid technology, at the highest level of world rallying, has resulted in the final green light given by the World Council of the FIA, the supreme authority in motorsport. And it is therefore in the most prestigious rally on the calendar, the 鈥淢onte-Carlo鈥, that this new era will begin.
鈥淎 milestone in the sport鈥檚 history鈥 for the 50th anniversary season
The introduction of sustainable hybrid technology for the WRC鈥檚 headline category marks one of the biggest milestones in the sport鈥檚 history. It鈥檚 fitting such a major progression will be welcomed in the championship鈥檚 50th anniversary season. Along with the FIA, the manufacturers and Promoter, WRC is fully committed to the introduction of greener cars. The hybrid powertrain forms an integral part of the automotive industry as the world moves towards a more sustainable future, and it鈥檚 essential the WRC is aligned with this evolution. This is rallying with a purpose 鈥 providing a perfect R&D platform for the automotive industry to communicate its new technology. WRC remains motorsport鈥檚 toughest championship for productionbased cars and the leadership from these teams sends a positive message about its future to other manufacturers considering joining the series.
The hybrid announcement followed confirmation of the WRC鈥檚 plans for more sustainable fuel for competing cars and greener energy sources in the service park. Sustainable fuel (synthetic or biofuel) will be provided to competitors across the different championship classes, and plug-in hybrid charging stations will be available in service parks, with sustainable energy covering the needs for World Rally Cars and general service park power requirements.
A 3.9 kWh battery for 100 kW of power (180 Nm)
Each new car in the WRC1 category is equipped with a hybrid unit and a 3.9 kWh battery able to produce 100 kW (136 hp) of supplementary power, for a torque of 180 Nm. It is installed at the rear of the car, next to the rear axle, and protected by an ultra-resistant carbon envelope. It can be used to provide additional power during a special stage or to drive quietly, while respecting the speed limits, on normal roads between the stages.
Spectators will have to wait for the green light to help the drivers !
In the event of a car crash, and if spectators want to help the crew to put the car back on the road, they will have to wait for a green light to appear at the top of the windshield. If this light is red, or off, they should not approach, because it will mean that the car is dangerous and that they risk being electrocuted by handling it. This instruction will be reminded to all spectators throughout the rally!

Rallye Monte-Carlo Preview : Toyota GR YARIS Rally1 ready for the WRC hybrid revolution
RALLYE MONTE-CARLO: Preview
Toyota GR YARIS Rally1 ready for the WRC hybrid revolution聽
The TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team will begin a bold new era in the FIA World Rally Championship when the 2022 season begins and the GR YARIS Rally1 makes its debut on the legendary Rallye Monte-Carlo from January 20-23.
The GR YARIS Rally1 is the successor to the all-conquering Yaris WRC, which claimed a clean sweep of the manufacturers鈥, drivers鈥 and co-drivers鈥 in the 2021 season that concluded just eight weeks ago at Monza in Italy. Now, the roads of the French Alps will play host to the first event for the revolutionary Rally1 cars, which take over from the World Rally Cars that have formed the highest category of the WRC for the past quarter of a century.
Rally1 cars feature several significant changes compared to their predecessors, headlined by the arrival of hybrid technology to the highest level of rallying for the first time. The hybrid unit in each car comprises of a 3.9kWh battery and a motor-generator unit (MGU) delivering an additional 100 kW (134 PS) under acceleration.
In the GR YARIS Rally1, this is combined with the proven 1.6-litre turbocharged engine from the Yaris WRC to provide the drivers with over 500 PS. The engine will run on a 100 per cent sustainable fuel: The first of its kind to be used in an FIA world championship.
The GR YARIS Rally1 is built around a dedicated spaceframe chassis offering increased safety protection for drivers and co-drivers. Other transformations required by the regulations include less complex aerodynamics, a return to a mechanical gearshift and the removal of the active centre differential. These changes will increase the focus on the skills of the drivers, who will also need to adapt to the demands around regenerating and deploying the hybrid energy on the stages, while working with their engineers to optimise the performance and drivability within these new parameters.
Since it ran for the first time last spring, the GR YARIS Rally1 has undergone a thorough testing programme which for the last few weeks has been focused on the particular demands of Rallye Monte-Carlo. The event is famed for its changeable conditions, which can vary from dry asphalt to snow and ice, and could provide an especially challenging start for the drivers in their new cars.
When the rally begins on Thursday night, the GR YARIS Rally1 of reigning champion S茅bastien Ogier will be the first of the new generation of cars to start a competitive stage. The eight-time world champion, who has also won Rallye Monte-Carlo a record eight times, is embarking on a partial schedule of events this season along with a new co-driver, Benjamin Veillas. Leading TOYOTA GAZOO Racing鈥檚 effort over the full season will be Elfyn Evans and his co-driver Scott Martin, who finished second in the 2021 standings, and Kalle Rovanper盲 and his co-driver Jonne Halttunen, who came fourth overall last season.
A total of four GR YARIS Rally1 cars will be present on every round with Takamoto Katsuta and co-driver Aaron Johnston contesting the full season for a newly-created team, TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team Next Generation.
The crews today begin three days of reconnaissance of the stages, 85 per cent of which are new compared to 2021. For the 90th edition of the rally, the service park moves to Monaco itself from Gap. After a shakedown on Thursday morning, the rally will begin in the evening from the iconic Casino Square ahead of an opening pair of night stages 鈥 the second includes a return to the classic Col de Turini, to be passed in darkness for the first time since 2013.
Friday is the longest day of the rally and consists of three stages to be run twice with no mid-day service, only a tyre-fitting zone in Puget-Th茅niers. The task is similar on Saturday, which takes place further to the west: Three stages will be run in the morning, two of which will be repeated in the afternoon after a tyre-fitting zone in Digne-les-Bains. The rally鈥檚 final day on Sunday is made up of two stages run twice 鈥 the latter stage finishing in Entrevaux is the only one that is identical to last year.
Quotes:
Jari-Matti Latvala (Team Principal)
鈥淩allying is entering a very new era and it鈥檚 a very exciting moment. There are a lot of question marks and Rallye Monte-Carlo will be giving us some of the answers. As a team we have been working very hard to be ready, but nobody can know how the different cars compare against each other until we get to the first rally. We might also see a difference between the drivers who feel the most confident with their new cars and those who will still be finding that confidence. There are a lot of changes for them to adapt to with how they drive and set up the cars. During testing this has been maybe the most important thing for the team: That our drivers feel confident and comfortable behind the wheel. For a driver, Monte Carlo has always been the most difficult rally in the championship. A lot is going to depend on the conditions: We have more power, but how do you use that power in snowy and icy conditions? On top of everything, the move from Gap to Monaco means there are a lot of new stages. There are so many unknowns and that makes it really exciting.鈥
S茅bastien Ogier (Driver car 1)
鈥淚鈥檓 at the beginning of a different stage in my career, and as I鈥檓 not taking part in the full championship the feeling is a little bit different to usual for me at this time of the year. But being part of this programme with TOYOTA GAZOO Racing is still exciting and going to Rallye Monte-Carlo is always special for me. I鈥檓 still a competitor and I still want to win, so I will be giving my best to perform. I know the team has been working very hard to be ready with this new generation of car and big steps have been made in every test. I鈥檝e had the chance to do three days of testing in the GR YARIS Rally1 in December and another day last week, all to prepare for this event. It鈥檚 quite a big change and it鈥檚 an exciting challenge to try and adapt to that. But I think going to Monte Carlo will be a huge challenge for everybody: There鈥檚 more uncertainty than ever going into this rally.鈥
Elfyn Evans (Driver car 33)
鈥淭his is an exciting time in our sport and I鈥檓 looking forward to the challenge of these new cars. Since I first tested the GR YARIS Rally1 we鈥檝e made some good progress, but it鈥檚 impossible to know where we stand relative to the competition until we get to Monte Carlo. So much has changed and it鈥檚 a clean sheet of paper. It鈥檚 not been easy to jump from a car that was so well-developed, where everything was coming quite easily, and into something that is a lot more unknown. The additional power from the hybrid system makes a huge difference and how you manage it could be worth quite a lot in certain cases. We鈥檝e already learned a lot in testing and I鈥檓 sure we鈥檙e going to continue learning a lot during the year, starting in Monte Carlo. It鈥檚 a rally that鈥檚 always a bit of a lottery with the weather anyway, and now the base has moved south there鈥檚 a lot of new stages and different terrain to get to grips with.鈥
Kalle Rovanper盲 (Driver car 69)
鈥淢y feeling with the new car is good and we have some good preparation behind us. With any new car there are always many things to work on and to improve, but I feel we have been making good progress all the time. It鈥檚 been especially interesting to get used to the boost from the hybrid. It gives you much more power, and that鈥檚 usually a good thing, but it can also be a bit tricky in certain points if you鈥檙e not ready to use it. As a driver you need to think about how to use it and if you can do that better than the others it could make quite a big difference. Rallye Monte-Carlo is going to be quite special this year. It鈥檚 always a tricky rally but this year we are going to have a lot of new stages as well as a totally new car. Friday and Saturday are going to be long days without mid-day service and if you can get through those days without issues that will already be quite good.鈥澛
