After consecutive victories at Tour de Corse and Rally Argentina, Hyundai Motorsport is searching for more success in Portugal, the sixth round of the 2017 World Rally Championship.
Neuville said: "We are still on a high after the results of Corsica and Argentina.
At the same time, we know we have to stay focused and concentrated on our job because the Championship is incredibly close.
It is quite a tricky event, but I am looking forward to it.
I am sure that with this new car and with the confidence we have, we can be fast." Crew Notes: Sordo/Martí (#6 Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC) Spaniards Sordo and Martí receive huge support from local Portuguese fans and those travelling from their home country to follow the rally.
There will be a change to the crew in the #4 car for this event with Seb Marshall stepping in as co-driver for Hayden Paddon.
John Kennard has been advised to rest on doctor's orders after the rough Argentinian stages aggravated an existing hip condition.
Unfortunately, John will not be co-driving at this event after aggravating an existing hip condition but it's good he will still be present in Portugal with the team.
Thanks to Seb for stepping in at an event he knows from last season. There are a lot of passionate people there who love rallying.
We saw with the margin to Elfyn in Argentina, one of the smallest in WRC history, that we can take nothing for granted.
Rally Portugal in its current format is still a bit of a new one for us, having only been in the north of the country for the last two seasons.
In addition, three brand new stages have been added to the schedule, with a double assault through Cabaceiras de Basto on Saturday and single runs through Luihas and Montim on Sunday.
