Coronel wants 12th season in WTCC
Tom Coronel is kind of legend in the World Touring Car Championship with three Independent Drivers’ championship trophies. Experienced Dutch driver has 11 seasons in the series and looking for 12th, but it is still uncertain for which team he will drive.
This season was really hard for Coronel. Due to many technical problems with Chevrolet RML Cruze, results were far below expectations and without results, sponsors are not so interested for future cooperation.
“I hope to stay in WTCC and I am in negotiations with sponsors. I can’t say anything yet, but situation looks promising. In the next couple of weeks I will decide whether I stay with ROAL Motorsport or i will join ALL-INKL Munnich Motorsport. Finally, everything depends of budget,” said 43-year-old Dutchman.
ROAL Motorsport is looking for second driver after contract with Tom Chilton won’t be renewed, while Munnich Motorsport already have one car available for Coronel as team owner Rene Munnich completely focused on TCR Series and World Rallycross Championship.
