Ford's Mads Ostberg will become the 26th driver to record 100 WRC starts at this week's Rally France.

The M-Sport driver made his debut back in 2006 and has featured stops at Subaru, Citroen and now a second stint with Ford.

He bagged a break-through WRC win at Rally Portugal in 2012 but hasn't been able to add to that tally since.

Ostberg is off-contract at the end of the season and is on the lookout for a fulltime drive.

"We are in negotiations with a few different teams and I feel it's going quite well," he told WRC.com. "It's never easy to know at this point of the year what might happen next year, but I'm very positive that we will find a good solution and that I can be in a good team."
