Team Mulsanne has parted company with Gianni Morbidelli ahead of this weekend’s FIA World Touring Car Cup (WTCR) triple-header at the Slovakiaring.

The ex-Formula 1 racer failed to score a point in any of the five meetings thus far behind the wheel of an Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR, with team-mate and compatriot Fabrizio Giovanardi similarly struggling.

A statement from the team read, “The whole team wants to thank the Italian driver for the contribution he has made up to the round in Portugal.

“The team’s lineup for the forthcoming round in Slovakia will be announced shortly.”
