Hyundai Motorsport has announced it has parted ways with its World Rally Championship team principal Michel Nandan, replacing him with Andrea Adamo for 2019.

Nandan joined Hyundai’s WRC project in January 2013 ahead of the manufacturer’s return to top-level rallying and departs after the team after six years in the role.

During his tenure, Hyundai claimed 10 WRC victories and secured its third consecutive second-place finish in the manufacturers’ championship in 2018.

Lead driver Thierry Neuville took three wins last season but ultimately missed out on the drivers’ title to Toyota’s Sebastien Ogier.

Hyundai’s customer racing manager Adamo will combine the new role of team director alongside his existing duties with the i20 R5 and i30 N TCR programmes with immediate effect.
