Monteiro delighted by SR-Sport deal

Tiago Monteiro pleased to return to the World Touring Car Championship for a fourth season
Tiago Monteiro admits he is delighted with the announcement that he will return to the World Touring Car Championship for a fourth season in 2010.

The former F1 driver had seen his chances of lining up on the grid hit by SEAT's decision to quit the series, but has now been named as one of four drivers for the SR-Sport team – which will run as an off-shoot of SUNRED Engineering.

Monteiro will be joined by defending champion Gabriele Tarquini, Jordi Gene and Tom Coronel for the season ahead.

"I am really happy to be able to compete in the WTCC again and to be a part of the SEAT family,” Monteiro said. “Apart from F1, the WTCC is the championship with the greatest level of competition. It is also a great pleasure to be integrated in such a unique paddock, I have learnt a lot over the past few years and it is essential that my career continues in the WTCC.

"I will give my all to secure the best results and to improve as a driver, and as a team, at each round of the season. This is the only mentality I will be working with at each race."
