WTCC car. Now, it has added three-time WTCC-winner and current points leader Yvan Muller to the 2014 team.

"We have set ambitious goals for our new challenge in WTCC, and the arrival of a driver as experienced as Yvan will help us to make rapid progress. He has shown this season that he is at the peak of his powers and that his thirst for wins has never been greater. He will also be an excellent point of reference for Sebastien Loeb,” said Yves Matton, Managing Director of Citroën Racing.

Muller tested the C-Elysée for the first time a few days ago at the Val de Vienne circuit and will be testing the car during its development ahead of the 2014 season. His contract commits him to the team for two seasons.

Muller currently has 312 points in the WTCC championships with four races and 220 points still available for the season. The second-place driver in the championship has 180 points. If Muller scores well, he could clinch the drivers’ championship this weekend.
