Team: NEXTEV TCR
Nelson Piquet Jr is the son of former F1 driver Nelson Piquet, who won three driver World Championships. Nelson Piquet Jr joined Formula One in 2008 for the Renault team. He will sadly be best remembered for the crashgate incident in Singapore where he was told to crash by Flavio Briatore to allow Fernando Alonso to win the race.
Since Nelson Piquet’s departure from Formula One, he has been driving in the Nascar Series and the Global Rallycross Championship.
Piquet is the current Formula E Champion after winning the championship in a dramatic finale at Battersea Park. The Brazilian driver will be hoping for that NEXTEV TCR cane continue to provide him with a championship winning car.
