Honda’s Norbert Michelisz grabbed his second World Touring Car Championship victory of the season in the main Termas de Rio Hondo race after long-time leader Nicky Catsburg suffered a puncture.

Having fended off the Portuguese driver’s attentions, Michelisz stayed with Catsburg early on but forfeited six tenths of a second to the Dutchman in the space of two laps in the middle of the race, as Catsburg began to build a comfortable lead.

Monteiro’s second place allowed him to extend his points lead over third-place finisher Thed Bjork, whose third podium from four races restored some pride for Volvo.
