The charismatic, ever-pop

The charismatic, ever-popular and enterprising Coronel has been part of the WTCC family since the series was revived in 2005. The Dutchman enjoyed a lengthy stint in Japan early in his career, winning the country’s Formula 3 and Formula Nippon titles. He’s also raced at Le Mans 10 times and has started the Dakar on three occasions. Coronel has got social media activation down to a fine art in his efforts to raise his profile and keep existing and new partners on board – and there was good reason to get online last season with two wins in Morocco and Portugal.
