Cyan Racing appoints Yvan Muller as WTCC advisor

Four-time World Champion Yvan Muller has joined Cyan Racing as development driver and senior advisor for the FIA World Touring Car Championship programme.

The Frenchman joined the team from 1st January 2017 and has joined all the test sessions with the Volvo S60 Polestar TC1 race car since then, working closely with drivers Thed Björk, Néstor Girolami and Nicky Catsburg, as well as with the team organisation on other areas of development.

"I am really glad and proud to have recruited Yvan to Cyan Racing," explained Christian Dahl, CEO of Cyan Racing. "There is no other touring car driver as experienced as him in the world and he is a vital asset to the team. We can already see the progress made, even though our cooperation is still quite new. The plan for the moment is that he is not going to race for us, but rather focus on testing and development."

Muller has not finished lower than third overall for the past ten years in the championship, claiming the title in 2008, 2010, 2011 and 2013, making him the most successful WTCC driver ever.

"To start a cooperation with Cyan Racing is something that I am very pleased with," added Muller. "They developed strongly last year for their first season and we have made interesting progress during the winter testing. I look forward to continuing to work with them and developing the car, as well as the team."
