New colleagues from the top of motorsport
Tamás Pál Kiss is one of the most versatile and successful Hungarian race drivers of the 2010s.
He started his karting career in 1998, his first major international racing success came in 2010 when he was third in the British Formula Renault Championship. This enabled him to move to GP3, which was launched a year earlier as support race for Formula 1 race weekends, where among others he competed against multiple F1 race winner Valtteri Bottas. He took victory only on his fourth race in the championship and to date, he is the only Hungarian circuit racer who took a podium finish in Monaco. During his final year in GP3, he made his debut in Formula Renault 3.5, a direct feeder series to Formula 1, then raced in AutoGP against the likes of Antonio Pizzonia, Christian Klien and Narain Karthikeyan, Kevin Magnussen, Nico Müller and Antonio Felix da Costa. He finished fifth in his first season and then second overall. He spent the last three years of his career in rallycross and soon joined the European Championship field. He finished second overall among the continent’s best drivers in 2017.
Vanda Borsos has been surrounded by the motorsport world since finishing high school. Initially, she was following the World Rally Championship for private reasons while she finished her bachelor’s degree. In 2012 she started to work for the motorsport department of Red Bull alongside Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Alphatauri Formula One teams and the Red Bull KTM MotoGP team, where she was responsible for the team track hospitalities. When Red Bull Racing won the F1 World Championship title again after 8 years, she left the Austrian company seeking for new challenges in sport management. She was building the personal management of the Olympic Champion Liu brothers in short track speed skating until the end of 2022, when she joined the MOTAM team as project manager.
