Hyundai WRC number one driver Thierry Neuville will be joined by Juho Hanninen on Rally Poland at the end of June, the team has confirmed.

Hanninen had been due to compete in Argentina last weekend, but in the end, Dani Sordo got the nod off the back of his impressive outing in Portugal. Hanninen, who competed for the team in Sweden and Portugal, will also drive the #8 car in Sardinia next month as well.

"With the [Rally Poland] itinerary featuring fast and flowing gravel stages - a kind of terrain very familiar to Finnish drivers - selecting Hanninen to partner Neuville was the ideal choice," said the Alzenau-based team.
