Rossel announced on social media on Friday that his two-year collaboration with Arnaud Dunand has come to an end. The pair had managed to secure a class bronze last season together.

“After almost 2 years spent together and many good memories, Arnaud Dunand – Co-driver has decided to take a step back, and our collaboration comes to an end,” Rossel wrote on social media.

“I would like to thank him for all the incredible job he has done during these past few months; I will never forget our victories, and I’m proud to have achieved a part of the road with him. I totally respect his decision and wish Arnaud the very best for the future.”

Rossel will continue the WRC season with another French co-driver, Benjamin Boulloud. 40-year-old Boulloud has been a co-driver in the European Rally Championship since 2016, working with well-known driver Yoann Bonato, among others.

“I’m also happy to announce I will share the Citroën C3 Rally2 with Benjamin Boulloud, back with me after our Monte-Carlo 2022, who will be providing the interim in Sardinia but also in Corsica next week for the 3rd round of the French Gravel Rally Championship (#0 car),” Rossel explained.

Rossel leads the WRC2 class in points after last week’s Rally de Portugal. However, the points standings are provisional, as different drivers have competed in varying numbers of events. Rossel won the season-opening Rally Monte Carlo, finished second on the tarmac in Croatia, and, after a puncture and time penalties, fifth in Portugal.
