Former WTCC champion Yvan Muller made his first appearance at the wheel of the Chevrolet Cruze overnight, at the Circuito Ricardo Tormo in Valencia.
The French ace, who switched from SEAT to RML Chevrolet at the end of the 2009 season after finishing runner-up to his team-mate Gabriele Tarquini, completed the first of two days of testing at the Spanish circuit.
Muller, 40, is one of WTCC’s most consistent and successful drivers. Since joining the championship in 2006, he has amassed a tally of 10 victories and 10 pole positions and has never finished outside the top-four in the Drivers’ Championship.
"I am still discovering the Cruze but can already tell it is a car with an excellent basis and a good potential for further growth. The team looks extremely professional and I am very pleased with the way we are working here in Valencia,” Muller commented.
