Yann Ehrlacher is braced for another tough season as he bids to win the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup title for a third time.

Ehrlacher, who became King of WTCR after winning the coveted title in 2020, retained his crown in 2021 following another standout campaign aboard his Goodyear-equipped Lynk & Co 03 TCR.

With his uncle Yvan Muller, the four-time FIA World Touring Car champion, by his side, Ehrlacher is well placed to challenge for more WTCR title success in 2022. However, the 25-year-old accepts it will be far from easy.

“The 2022 season will be as challenging as every year, the competition will be very high,” said the Cyan Racing Lynk & Co driver. “I have no illusions that it will be easier after two consecutive titles, we will have to try even harder this year. I have worked hard mentally and physically ahead of this season, and I feel ready. I am super-happy to start my fourth season with Cyan Racing.”
