Norbert Michelisz underlined his status as a national hero by winning the second MOL Group WTCC Race of Hungary, his first victory in this year’s FIA World Touring Car Championship.
Roared on by a 35,000 crowd, Michelisz led from pole position to bag Honda’s first win in this year’s WTCC and claim Yokohama Drivers’ Trophy honours in the process.
Tom Coronel and Tom Chilton were second and third respectively in their ROAL Motorsport Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1s with Tiago Monteiro fourth for the Castrol Honda World Touring Car Team.
Sébastien Loeb made it through a second corner collision unscathed to finish fifth as the first Citroën home. Team-mate and WTCC leader José María López was sixth in the reverse grid race. Rob Huff was not so fortunate however, retiring his LADA with accident damage on lap one.
Earlier this week-end, López beat Citroën team-mate Yvan Muller to the top spot in race 1.
