Hi guys, so here is a introduction to tell you a little bit about myself…
After racing in Europe last season I emerged as Vice Champion in the 2011 ADAC Formula Masters Championship, as well as qualifying to be a finalist in the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year Award.
The winter months were quite difficult due to the current economic climate surrounding motorsport, but we were able to sign a late deal with ma-con Motorsport prior to the opening round of the FIA European Formula Three Championship at Hockenheim.
Even though this meant receiving the car out of box just days before the opening round with no testing under my belt, it was great to make the grid in what is one of the strongest formula’s outside of Formula One at the minute.
The season has progressed very well so far and after getting used to the car I have proved to be very competitive gaining numerous podiums in the process. My aim for the remainder of the season is to keep maintaining this push towards the front to establish myself to the best of my ability before the 2013 season.
Thanks for taking the time to read my introduction and I look forward to uploading my latest blog after the next round at Valencia 28/29/30 September.
