Sébastien Chardonnet steps up to WRC 2 in 2014 after winning both the WRC 3 category and the Citroen Top Driver series last year. He is expected to be behind the wheel of the all-new Citroen DS3 R5 car when it is homologated in March, his prize for claiming the letter crown.

He has been racing since the age of 11 but only switched to rallying in 2009 and made his debut in the WRC on the 2012 Rallye Monte-Carlo when he finished 19th in a Renault Clio R3. He ended the year in a highly impressive 10th in a Citroen DS3 WRC at his native Rallye de France-Alsace.

Last year’s double success marked him out as the latest French driver named Seb to make his mark in the WRC, following in the footsteps of Loeb and Ogier.
