Yvan Muller believes he can fight for the 2019 WTCR FIA World Touring Car Cup, even though he concedes the opposition will be 'tough” to beat.

Muller, the four-time FIA World Touring Car champion and arguably the sport’s most accomplished racer, will drive an all-new Lynk & Co 03 TCR, developed by Geely Group Motorsport and run by Cyan Racing.

Ahead of the new season getting underway at WTCR Race of Morocco from 5-7 April, last year’s runner-up acknowledged that being part of the WTCR 2019 Supergrid won’t be easy.

“I am ready for the 2019 WTCR season that is going to be a real challenge,” said the Frenchman, who lost out on the inaugural title to Gabriele Tarquini by three points.

“We have a thorough development programme that we are currently performing and while we will face tough opposition, I think we can challenge the top at the start of the season.”
