Muller wins as Chevy escape Hungary mayhem

Yvan Muller claimed his fifth victory of the season leading home a Chevrolet 1-2-3 with Rob Huff and Alain Menu in second and third position respectively at the Hungaroring in Hungary.


Once again the Chevrolet drivers capitalised on their qualifying results and survived a series of incidents at the start that eliminated or delayed their most dangerous competitors, with Gabriele Tarquini retiring and Norbert Michelisz forced to recover after being involved in crashes near the start.

Tarquini tried to overtake Huff on the outside of turn one on the opening lap, but they came together and Tarquini was out of the race.

Michelisz, meanwhile, was the innocent victim as he was forced off the track when Menu and Mehdi Bennani came together.

Cheers on by thousands of fans, Hungarian racer Michelisz put in a great show and recovered up to the sixth position, just to lose it on the last lap to Tom Coronel who was also rushing up from the back.

Mehdi Bennani achieved his best ever result in WTCC, by finishing fourth overall and also claimed his first victory of the season in the Yokohama Trophy from Pepe Oriola and Alex MacDowall. Tiago Monteiro delivered a brilliant performance, driving his SUNRED León car to fifth, his best result so far this year.
