Ultimately, this is my favourite circuit of all time, nothing else comes close to it. I love the high-speed corners and the rapid chicanes. After my win at Rockingham I was looking forward to getting in another here.
Rockingham has always had a low-grip surface which is very hard on tyres. I quite like this circuit with a mix of everything as well as being one of the only anti-clockwise circuits. I had a nice result at Hockenheim after which I hoped to progress further and get some more results here.
After Magny-Cours I was pretty confident of my pace and looking forward to making up some lost ground. I have always liked the Hockenheim circuit with its relatively high-speed straights and fast, flowing corners. The last time I was here I won one race, and got punted off in the other, so I had mixed thoughts.
I turned up to Magny-Cours to find the weather was like an English summer, really warm and very pleasant. Fresh from the last race at Silverstone, I had come armed with a few bits of important information that I hoped would help me out.
After Oulton Park I came away with decent points on the board after a hard first weekend. Silverstone was the first race for which I had the full updates available on the car and I was looking forward to scoring further points.
Returning to Oulton Park this year was a great feeling after such a successful start there during my previous year in F3. I worked hard over the winter break on fitness, preparing myself for a three race weekend, a great opportunity for lots of track time.
After a long winter period of training and general preparation it has come to the first race which takes place at Oulton Park this upcoming weekend.
After qualifying second for both races by only 0.1 of a second to Gabriel Dias I would always be on the back foot, so the start to the race would be the most important part.
After finishing second in the first race I wanted a first place to finish the weekend off well, starting second place again put me at a disadvantage but I knew I had good starts off the line so I thought I could get into the lead and stay there after some positive changes made to the car after race one.
