Huff, Menu and Muller confirmed for Chevrolet 2012
Rob Huff, Alain Menu and Yvan Muller are going to continue for Chevrolet in the FIA World Touring Car Championship 2012.
“I am happy we can announce our 2012 driver line up ahead of the last, decisive rounds of this season,” said Eric Nève of Chevrolet Motorsport Europe.
Huff and Menu have driven for Chevrolet since 2005 in the WTCC, with Muller joining them in 2010.
“It makes perfect sense for us to keep them onboard. Rob, Alain and Yvan are not only three top class drivers, committed and professional, they are also excellent ambassadors of our brand,” said Nève.
The trio currently occupy the top three spots in the championship with Muller in the lead, Huff second and Menu third, ahead of the final three races of the season.
“They can now travel to Asia with even clearer minds. It is an exceptional situation to have the three drivers of the same team as the only title contenders. We will try and manage this in the fairest way possible by providing them the best cars and conditions to defend their chances. There won’t be any team orders as such. They will race each other hard but it will have to remain fair and not endanger the interests of the team and the brand. I am sure we are going to see some exciting racing!” said Nève.
