WRC 11 is on the way, and we're hyped! The 2022 season is already underway, so we know which drivers and teams we can expect to see in WRC 11. Here's the full list of what we can expect later this year!
WRC 11 Teams and Drivers
There are a total of three manufacturers in the 2022 WRC season. These are Ford, Hyundai and Toyota. There are a total of 13 drivers for these outfits, with another four being privateers driving Fords.
|Ford||M-Sport Ford WRT||16||Adrien Fourmaux||Alexandre Coria|
|Ford||M-Sport Ford WRT||19||Sebastian Loeb||Isabelle Galmiche|
|Ford||M-Sport Ford WRT||42||Craig Breen||Nagle|
|Ford||M-Sport Ford WRT||44||Gus Greensmith||Jonas Andersson|
|Hyundai||Hyundai i20 N Rally1||2||Oliver Solberg||Elliott Edmondson|
|Hyundai||Hyundai i20 N Rally1||6||Dani Sordo||Candido Cerrera|
|Hyundai||Hyundai i20 N Rally1||8||Ott Tanak||Martin Jarveoja|
|Hyundai||Hyundai i20 N Rally1||11||Thierry Neuville||Martijn Wydaeghe|
|Toyota||Toyota GR Yaris Rally1||1||Sebastian Ogier||Benjamin Vellias|
|Toyota||Toyota GR Yaris Rally1||4||Esapekka Lappi||Janne Ferm|
|Toyota||Toyota GR Yaris Rally1||33||Elfyn Evans||Scott Martin|
|Toyota||Toyota GR Yaris Rally1||69||Kalle Rovanpera||Jonne Halttunen|
|Toyota||Toyota GR Yaris Rally1||18||Takamoto Katsuta||Aaron Johnston|
It should be noted that both Sebastian Loeb and Seb Ogier have only entered the Monte Carlo Grand Prix so far. As these are one-off appearances, it is doubtful that they will be included in the WRC 11 regular season.
However, it is possible and can't be ruled out.
Will we see classic drivers?
Historical content is an important part of the WRC video games. Both classic events and cars have been a big attraction in WRC 10, but what about drivers and co-drivers?
Well, we haven't heard anything like this being suggested yet, but it could happen. Games like MotoGP 21 and F1 2021 both have classic, or legendary, drivers in them, so it makes sense to think about it.
Playing as or against legends like Carlos Sainz, Stig Blomqvist and of course, the great Colin McRae, would be so much fun. It's cool to rally against the cars they drove, but nothing compared to being actual representations of them.
