Top Hungarian Norbert Michelisz will enjoy the support of MOL Group for a fourth season as he strives to achieve his objective "to be the best" in the FIA World Touring Car Championship.
MOL Group, a leading international oil and gas company, will continue as the main sponsor of Zengő Motorsport and its star driver Michelisz, who finished fourth in last year's WTCC standings driving a Honda Civic WTCC. According to MOL Group, the partnership underlines the organisation's corporate philosophy to support top talents in sports and business to achieve their long-term ambitions.
"I have constantly been challenging myself in order to achieve my life-long ambition: to be the best," said Michelisz, who learned how to race by playing driving video games. "MOL Group provides me with maximum support because ambition and a challenging attitude are key values to the company."
Dominic Köfner, Vice President and Head of Corporate Communications at MOL Group, said: "We are delighted to support Norbert as one of the best racing drivers in the WTCC and we fuel his ambition to become world champion. This is a truly ideal partnership since – just like us – Norbert Michelisz is challenging his competitors through his courage, discipline and ambition.
As well as supporting Michelisz, MOL Group member company Panta Distribuzione S.p.A. is the official fuel supplier of the WTCC.
