2019 FIA Formula 2 
Round 7 Silverstone, Great Britain


 
“I've always been quite successful at Silverstone. My first ever car race was there in Formula Palmer Audi and I got pole and finished second which started off a good love affair as they say! I suppose the highlight at this level is winning there in back in 2016. I probably had the best part of 50 people there - friends, family and partners. It felt good to be there with lots of people who had come on the journey with me and who had supported me.


 
“I enjoy Silverstone. It is a real pleasure to drive. It's an old-school circuit and there is something special about driving there - with it being your home Grand Prix it's like a double win. From what you see as a driver, the fans look amazing, there’s plenty of colour in the crowd and you like to think that all the union flags in the grandstand are for you.


 
“It's really fast and it's physically one of the hardest tracks of the year on your neck, shoulders and arms. It's tricky with all the high-speed corners and tyre degradation is normally quite high. That makes for another interesting aspect to the racing angle.


 
“Although it's high-speed and it's hard to follow through the corners you can still overtake. The two main overtaking spots are into Brooklands and Stowe but battles go on for more than a couple of corners.


 
“I used to be a lot more stressed about the smaller details but now I'm just driving for the moment, to help the team, push the guys forward. I'm still setting goals and trying to achieve things but I'm not going into qualifying thinking 'I have to be top five' because it's unnecessary pressure. I'm just going out and driving the best that I can.”
