“Not only do I get to take another step up the single-seater ladder with one of the top teams in GP3 but I also get my first taste of endurance racing with a Le Mans LMP2 class-winning team as well.

“The chances it gives me to showcase what I’m capable of in front of probably the two biggest audiences in motorsport will be invaluable as I progress my career.”

“Judging by how well Jake has already integrated into the team, together with his performance on track in Abu Dhabi, it is going to be an exciting season ahead.”
