I always thought that Russian rally ace Alexey Lukyanuk is a Citroen works driver but it seems that he is not because he ran out of the budget three rallies before the end of the season.
Luakynuk already won two ERC rallies this season and currently leads the championship table so it would be a bad thing now to retire from the championship because of the lack of budget.
Yeah, it is always about the money in the motorsport so that is the reason I always drive lower categories where I can buy a car and prepare it on the budget I can achieve.
I still don't know if there is some crow funding or what but he is a Russian so maybe some Russian oligarch can help him to finish the season on the high.
Just to add that Lukyanuk was European Rally Champion in 2018 so that could also help a little bit...
