Fourmaux parts ways with co-driver Jamoul

M-Sport Ford World Rally Team driver Adrien Fourmaux has announced an end to his partnership with co-driver Renaud Jamoul.

Fourmaux announced the news today (Wednesday) in an emotional post to his social media channels which said:

“After almost 3 years of complicity, our roads part with Renaud. The story had started on a highway area, it ends after the Acropolis in a WRC. What a way we've come together.

“Thank you for accompanying me on my international debut and agreeing to co-pilot the feisty young rider I was. Thank you for these moments. 

“From the first point in the world to the first time scratch [stage win] in a WRC to the ERC victory in the Canaries, but also those laughs and our omelette named ‘La Jamoulaux’ every morning of the race.

“I wish you all the best for your future. I'm sure you'll accomplish beautiful things. Thank you, Renaud!”

Fourmaux and Jamoul first joined forces in 2019 and made their debut together at Rallye Monte-Carlo. 

Two seasons with M-Sport in Rally2 machinery followed before the pair hit the big time this year when they were given a drive in the British squad’s Fiesta World Rally Car on selected rallies. 

They impressed with top five finishes in Croatia and Kenya and also claimed a stage win at the latter. 

Fourmaux had been alternating his top-tier drives with Teemu Suninen, but the Finn departed the team last month. It is expected that Fourmaux will drive the Fiesta WRC on all remaining rallies this season. 

A replacement for Jamoul is not yet confirmed, however, the Frenchman has an entry for Secto Automotive Rally Finland early next month (1 - 3 October) and an announcement is expected over the coming days.
