Gap, France

Hyundai Motorsport is deeply saddened to learn of the tragic passing of a spectator during the opening stage of Rallye Monte-Carlo on Thursday evening.

The incident occurred at the same time as the #4 Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC of Hayden Paddon and John Kennard crashed into the mountainside, after the car hit a patch of black ice at the entry to a left-hand turn.

The team and crew have pledged their full support to the event organisers and authorities to understand the full details.

Hyundai Motorsport extends its condolences to the family, friends and individuals affected.
