Aurélien Panis (born 29 October 1994 in Saint-Martin-d'Hères) is a professional French racing driver. He is best known for being the son of the former Formula 1 driver, Olivier Panis. From 2017 he is one of the two drivers of Zengő Motorsport - the first non-Hungarian the team has fielded in the WTCC.[1]

Career[edit]

Aurélien Panis began his career in 2011 in the national French F4 Championship. He finished tenth. In 2012, he joined Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 and Formula Renault 2.0 Alps, but scored no points in Eurocup, and only 26 in Alps. He became a member of the Caterham Racing Academy, from Caterham F1 Team in 2013, and scored his first points in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0. In 2014, he left Caterham but won two victories: one in Eurocup and an other one in Northern European Cup.

He joined Formula Renault 3.5 Series for 2015, with Tech 1 Racing.[2] Next year, in the series - which was renamed as Formula V8 3.5 Series - he scored two wins and finished the championship in 5th position.

In 2017, he decided to switch for touring cars as he started the year in WTCC with a Honda Civic TC1 car at Zengő Motorsport.[3] But after five round, he split with the Hungarian team [4] and went towards TCR International Series where he participated with the Boutsen Ginion Racing squad.[5] In the later championship he took one win with the Belgian team's Honda Civic TCR.

This year, he will race in World Touring Car Cup (FIA WTCR) with an Audi RS3 LMS at Comtoyou Racing.[6]
