Who is he?The four-time FIA World Touring Car champion is preparing for his third WTCR title bid, this time in the same team as his nephew, Yann Ehrlacher, despite ‘retiring’ from driving at the end of the 2016 season…

What makes him a hero?With more titles (four), wins (48), poles (29), fastest laps (38) and laps led (571), Muller is the most successful driver in FIA World Touring Car Championship history. He’s also known for his versatility, claiming the British F2 crown in 1992 and the Andros Trophée ice-racing series on 10 occasions. His CV also includes Dakar and World Rally Championship outings.

Who are his heroes?:For his ultimate podium, Muller has picked: “Yann [Ehrlacher], my nephew, for sure, then I would like to be on the podium with Gabriele [Tarquini] because we did so many together and maybe Tiago [Monteiro] because we are here since a long time, but it could also be Rob Huff or Tom Coronel.”
