Analysing the key moves in WRC’s 2022 silly season

The World Rally Championship will step into a new hybrid era in 2022, but the car changes haven't been the only excitement that has built within the paddock. WRC's 'silly season' kicked off in a big way and all the key driver moves for 2022 - of which there are many - look set to shake things up

The World Rally Championship silly season hit a metaphorical sixth gear over crest last week as a raft of driver confirmations were announced ahead of 2022’s new hybrid era.

Announcements from Toyota, Hyundai and M-Sport arrived in the space of 48 hours ensuring the majority of the field is now locked in, with only two seats at M-Sport Ford, Toyota’s fourth car and Hyundai’s 2C Competition’s plans yet to be officially announced.
