Yvan Muller announced last Thursday that he would step down from racing in the World Touring Car Championship at the end of the 2016 season, bringing to an end an 11-year stay in the series.
Four title successes - one with SEAT and three with Chevrolet - in six years in the late 2000s and early '10s marked Muller out as a contender for greatest touring car driver of all time. He holds all of the WTCC's records - from races won, to laps led, to points scored.
Muller has refused to rule out racing in the future, but the final rounds of the 2016 WTCC season will almost certainly be the last in regular competition for the 47-year-old. And while in recent years he's been left in the shade by Citroen team-mate Jose Maria Lopez, Muller will undoubtedly (and rightly) go down in history as one of the finest tin-top drivers.
