Ex-Formula One driver with 37 grand prix starts to his name, Tarquini has been a touring car titan for more than two decades. Currently racing for Hyundai in the TCR International Series, the 2009 champion makes a one-off WTCC comeback as stand-in for the injured Tiago Monteiro. The outing marks his first WTCC start since Qatar in November 2016 – where he was a winner for LADA – and a return to the factory Honda fold where he drove from 2013-2015. Previously a British and European touring car champion for Alfa Romeo, technical prowess and a no-nonsense driving style are key attributes.
