The Sami event will be perfect preparation for the Swedish Rally », Declares Olivier Quesnel, director of Citroën Racing, in AUTOhebdo.

« It?s something important for us to compete in the Arctic Rally – we really wanted to take part in the event to prepare ourselves for next season », Adds Lindstrom on the official WRC website. “ This is a rally that we have already competed in with Kimi. He therefore knows – more or less – the special stages and this will be a great opportunity for him to gain experience in terms of driving and taking notes. »
