Last season, fought Neuville to the last contest with Frenchman Sebastien Ogier for the title. But just as in 2013, 2016 and 2017 had the rally driver from the east Cantons peace with second place.

Last year started Neuville and his co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul excellent on the season with three victories, but in the second part of the campaign, they gave it away. “We need to be more consistent. That’s where our team is still a wide margin to get better,” acknowledges Neuville. “We work together to try our best campaign so far. But we also know that our rivals are strong, so we will our efforts must be doubled.”
