After Volvo announced the return of Yvan Muller in the final stage of the season-2017 WTCC in Qatar, the Frenchman began to receive threats of violence from the Hungarian fans.
Mueller, who will replace Locale Nestor Girolami, tries to help Ted Bjork to win the title, and the main rival of the Swede in the championship is the Hungarian Norbert Michelis. At the moment Norbert is behind björck’s 6.5 points.
“Since the release of the press release, which said about my participation in the race, I became the target for many fans Norby, who wrote about me bad comments – quoted by Muller, Touring Car Times. – I understand that sometimes fans can be a little overdo, but when in a personal message talking about my murder, violent acts against wives and daughters, is already too much.
When messages are sent to me, is one thing, but when they get members of my family, I have to tell them that it’s just a sports game. I would like to Norby also heard about it. As a father, I am sure that he will understand me and will help solve the problem.”
