Michelisz has undergone a huge transition since his online gaming exploits earned him a test at the Hungaroring and ended earlier ambitions of a career in economics. Under Zengő Motorsport’s guidance, he raced Suzukis and SEATs before winning the 2009 SEAT León Eurocup. His WTCC debut followed in 2010, also in a León, and he scored a breakthrough win in the Macau finale and lifted the Rookie Challenge. His long-term association with Honda began as a privateer in 2013. He became a fully-fledged factory driver in 2016, having twice claimed the independent title, and won for the team in Japan.
