Rally careerEdit

Jonas Andersson began his rally career in 2002, co-driving for Per-Gunnar Andersson. In the 2002 Rally Sweden, he made his WRC debut in a Renault Clio RS.[1]

From 2009, he started to partner with the Norwegian rally driver Mads Østberg.[1] In the 2011 Rally Sweden, they achieved their first podium finish.[2] One year later, in Portugal, the crew won their first and only WRC victory after Mikko Hirvonen's disqualification.[3]

Starting from 2017, Andersson began to cooperate with Pontus Tidemand. They won the 2017 WRC-2 title at Škoda Motorsport in a Škoda Fabia R5.[4]
