Yvan Muller tests Citroen's World Touring Car Championship entry

Citroen dropped its firmest hint yet that Yvan Muller is in line for a 2014 World Touring Car Championship drive after releasing a promotional video showing him testing the new C-Elysee.
The French firm is yet to announce who will partner nine-time World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb when it moves into the WTCC next year.
AUTOSPORT understands however that an official announcement will be made on Wednesday.
Citroen Racing team principal Yves Matton admitted previously that Muller was on the team's radar, saying it was a priority to recruit a driver with title-winning experience.
Muller has run away with this year's championship, and is now 132 points clear of the field after collecting his sixth win of the season last weekend in Argentina.
"It's terrific: a real thoroughbred," Muller says of the C-Elysee in the video.
"I think we should be able to do great things with it."
