Citroen celebrates centenary with 2019 WRC livery

Citroen has unveiled its 2019 WRC livery which has been designed to celebrate the brand's centenary.

The livery was shown off on Sebastien Ogier's C3 – the Frenchman returns to Citroen this season alongside co-driver Julien Ingrassia, having spent two seasons at M-Sport where he won back-to-back titles and prior to that five years with VW Motorsport, where he won four consecutive titles.

The new livery has been designed to celebrate Citroen's 100th anniversary and features the double chevrons of the brand's original logo as well as a symbolic reference to 1919, the year in which the brand was founded.

Red Bull returns as sponsor, the energy drinks logo adoring the side of the car, alongside long-standing partners Total and Michelin.

Esapekka Lappi and his navigator Janne Ferm join Ogier for the 2019 campaign.

The new season kicks off with the traditional stop in Monte Carlo on January 24-27.
