In London, England today, December 12, Richard Burns settled the dispute with Subaru. The 2001 World Rally Champion was released from his contract with Subaru in order to switch to Peugeot for the 2002 season.

The multi-million-dollar settlement was reached out-of-court between the two parties. Burns signed a contract prior to the end of the season to become a driver with Peugeot.

Subaru sued for breech of contract.

The Englishman could have been forced to sit out the 2002 season. The settlement allows both teams to get on with their testing.
