will be officially presented on December 8 at Monte-Carlo Beach, but other than the livery not much about the car will be different for this season. 

“We are very proud to have forged a relationship with a partner that is as prestigious and dynamic as Abu Dhabi. Like our long-time partner Total, Abu Dhabi will be visible across all our 2013 programs: on the works teams competing in the WRC," said Yves Matton, Citroën Racing Team Principal.

The team may have won the last five consecutive WRC titles, but it is facing big changes for this season. Sebastian Loeb, the most winning driver in WRC history, will only race in four rounds of the 2013 championship. He is transitioning to sports car racing and running a team. 

 “We’ll start the season in Monte-Carlo and we’ll also be competing in Sweden, because it’s a rally that I would love to win in normal racing conditions. And I couldn‘t begin to think about missing the Rallye de France,” said Loeb.
