French rally driver Adrien Fourmaux has shown off his new World Rally Championship livery, adorning his M-Sport powered Ford Fiesta.
Fourmaux will run a split WRC and WRC-2 programme during the 2021 rally season, with his first WRC appearance of 2021 coming at Rally Croatia in the Zagreb region in April.
Fourmaux claimed his first WRC point in the 2019 Rallye Monte-Carlo followed by ninth in 2020’s Rally Turkey. Alongside those results, the 25-year-old performed impressively in the WRC-2 category with a third-place finish overall behind Norwegian Mads Østberg and Swede Pontus Tidemand in the 2020 championship.
Beginning at this week’s Arctic Rally Finland, Fourmaux will sport a new livery behind the wheel of the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta Rally2 and Ford Fiesta WRC in the FIA World Rally Championship.
“I’m really excited to be making the step up to WRC this year, and following in the path that my rally heroes have taken in the past. My eyes are also firmly fixed on preparing for my WRC debut at a brand-new event, Rally Croatia in April,” said Fourmaux.
“Red Bull sees the same potential in Adrien as we do and it’s fantastic to welcome them back to the M-Sport family,” added M-Sport Managing Director Malcolm Wilson. “This is the first step in a concerted effort towards coming out fighting with the new regulations. A lot of our resources are going into ensuring we have the best possible package going into 2022.”
