Filippi joins Sébastien Loeb Racing in 2017 alongside Tom Chilton and Mehdi Bennani in a third Citroën C-Elysée following three seasons with Campos Racing, initially in TC2 in 2014 before his step up to TC1 power for 2015. The 22-year-old Corsican became the youngest driver to start on pole in the series at the 2015 WTCC DHL Race of Qatar, aged 20 years and nine months. Filippi remained with Campos last year, again piloting his Chevrolet RML Cruze TC1 and was on the reverse-grid Opening Race pole in Argentina and China. He raced karts and single-seaters before his WTCC debut.
