Once I get to drive more, with mileage and experience, then I can do some good things.


I've worked hard to get here ever since I started karting at six years old, but the real work starts now as I prepare myself for the biggest challenge of my career.


Physics still exists, if you have lighter car with less fuel it goes a bit quicker!
