The veteran of Formula 1 and touring car racing will now assist Levente Losonczy, who competes in TCR Italy and TCR Europe. The driver of Agressive Team Italia is looking forward to working with him.
Gianni Morbidelli, who competed in 67 Formula 1 races between 1990 and 1997 and also achieved considerable success in touring car racing, will be Levente Losonczy’s new mentor. The 55-year-old veteran driver has also scored podium finishes in the premier class, and at the 1991 Australian Grand Prix he replaced Alain Prost, who retired before the end of the season, in Ferrari, scoring points in his only race.
The driver, who won the Italian Formula 3 championship at the age of 21, has also made his mark in touring car racing, winning the Italian championship before making his debut in Formula 1. After his F1 career, he competed in the prestigious British Touring Car Championship (BTCC), the European Touring Car Championship and the World Touring Car Championship, but also in various GT championships, winning several championships in the process. At the end of his career, he was a member of the TCR International Series and in the final season of the TCR Europe.
“It’s a huge honour to work with a driver of such calibre, who has been in Formula 1 and also has a great knowledge of touring car racing and TCR. He knows what he is talking about, so I am sure I will get a lot of useful advice from him. I’m really looking forward to working with him,” said Levente, who will be competing for Agressive Team Italia in TCR Italy and TCR Europe.
The Hungarian driver has worked with Pepe Oriola, with whom he keeps a good relationship.
