Craig Breen’s regular co-driver, up to now, shall substitute Daniel Barritt to the right of Evans.
2019 off-season is being dynamic about drivers and next campaign’s beginning shall bring new couples at the world rallies. Now, Japanese driver Takamoto Katsuta announces his sports programme, surprising with Barritt’s incorporation to his right seat. So, at least for now, what we know is that the Evans-Barritt crew has come to an end.
Thereafter, we found out that Elfyn Evans has a new co-driver for next season. Still without certainty of what young M-Sport driver’s plan will actually be, it’s already been revealed that Scott Martin will be in charge of reading pace notes for Evans. It appears that Breen’s future becomes darker as we come closer to the battle’s start.
Without any certainty that the Irish driver shall be able to have a full time program in 2019, his co-driver’s exit to seat next to Evans indicates that the situation won’t come easy for him. Besides this triple change, we must add Sebastien Marchall’s seat switch, who leaves Paddon to get in a Toyota together with Kris Meeke.
