Shaymiev, who is one of Russia’s richest men, started his career in 2004 and much of his driving has been centred on events in Finland and Estonia in Mitsubishi Lancers and a Peugeot 207 S2000.

His first WRC appearance was in Finland in 2007 and he tackled that rally every year up to 2016. He did not appear on any other WRC round until 2015 when he embarked on a WRC 2 programme in a Ford Fiesta R5.

A more limited programme in 2016 led to a blank season in 2017, but Shaymiev returns in 2018 in a Fiesta R5 run by TAIF Motorsport.
