ANDREAS MIKKELSEN

Date of birth: 22 June 1989

Place of birth: OSLO (N)

The Norwegian was just a teenager when he began his rally career. He has been actively involved in rally sport since 2006 and made his world championship debut in his first year in Great Britain. In 2008, he racked up world championship points in Sweden – the youngest driver in the history of the competition at the age of just 17 years and 233 days. In 2009, he secured the highest step on the podium for himself in the Norwegian Rally Championship. The official Škoda UK driver celebrated his greatest successes so far by winning the Intercontinental Rally Challenge in 2011 and 2012. Since the 2013 Rally Portugal Mikkelsen starts in the Polo R WRC, bringing in 50 points in his first season. 2014 he entered the podium for the first time. A total of five times Mikkelsen ends up in the top three drivers and finished third behind his team-mates Sébastien Ogier and Jari-Matti Latvala.

ANDERS JæGER

Date of birth: 29 July 1989

Place of birth: OSLO (N)

Anders Jæger started his career in 2013 as Bernt Kollevold's co-driver in the Norwegian Rally Championship, which he also contested in 2014 and 2015. He was also the co-pilot of fellow countryman Ole Christian Veiby in the Junior WRC and the European Rally Championship. The Norwegian duo was runner-up in the Junior WRC championship in 2015. The 2016 season sees Anders move to Volkswagen, where he will replace Ola Fløene as Andreas Mikkelsen's co-driver. Anders is mad about sport. In the winter, he keeps fit by skiing. In the summer, he enjoys going for a ride on his bike or having a kick about. This is a great way for a co-driver to make sure he has a clear head and is focussed on the job in hand.
