Audi, which swept the drivers', manufacturers' and teams' titles in the category last year, goes into 2018 with one change in its six-strong driver line-up.

The marque will continue to be represented by Loic Duval, Mike Rockenfeller, Jamie Green, Nico Muller, and reigning champion Rene Rast - while series veteran Mattias Ekstrom has made way for rookie Robin Frijns as the Swede opted to focus on his World Rallycross efforts.

Of the Ingolstadt marque's line-up, only Green has retained a largely unchanged livery, sticking with a familiar orange colour scheme.

Duval, who ran a light blue and green paint job with Castrol Edge and Aral ultimate backing in 2017, has moved to a black colour scheme, with Muller now set to drive a primarily-green Castrol-backed car and Frijns inheriting the light blue of the BP-owned Aral ultimate.

Rockenfeller has forgone a green and yellow paint job for green and white, while champion Rast will now drive a red Audi RS5 DTM.
