Panis, the son of former F1 driver Olivier, makes his WTCC debut in 2017 with Zengő Motorsport as the first non-Hungarian driver signed to the team. The 22-year-old began his career in French F4 in 2011 before progressing to the Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 series the following year. After a stint with the Caterham Racing Academy in 2013 he joined the ART Junior Team and scored his first Formula Renault wins in 2014. Panis has also had success in the Andros Trophy and the Formula V8 3.5 Series, where he finished fifth in the points with Arden Motorsport last year.
