Petter Solberg is considering moving to a management position.April 22, 2019
Petter Solberg after the completion of the career of the rider can go to a management position, the official website of the WRC. In 2003, when Petter Solberg behind the wheel of the Subaru won the World Rally Championship, his partner was the legendary “flying Finn” Tommy Mäkinen, who now heads the team of Toyota Gazoo Racing. Solberg hinted that he was planning to follow in his footsteps.
“To lead the factory team is my dream,” the 45-year-old Norwegian admitted. “Rally has always been my first love and my passion, and it would have been incredible to do what Tommy managed.
Tommy and I did a great job when we played for Subaru. He was charged for success and was able to transfer this attitude to Toyota, which I would like to achieve in the future. “
In the past, Solberg was able to combine the performances with the leading role – in the WRC from 2009 to 2011 and in the WRX from 2013 to 2016, the Norwegian said his own team.
“After the third place in the individual competition in 2010 with my own team, I was incredibly proud,” said Petter. – Then I won two titles in the World Rally Cross with PSRX.
I recently made a very important decision and would like to say thank you for the amazing support messages from around the world. But for now, I will remain silent and explore possible options before taking the next step. However, it would be very interesting to lead a team in the World Rally Championship or World Rally Cross. ”
