Na­bil aims for top 15 fin­ish in Monaco

New Straits Times - - Sport -

MALAYSIAN Formula Two Cham­pi­onship driver Muham­mad Na­bil Jef­fri is tar­get­ing a top 15 fin­ish in Monaco this week­end.

“Monaco has al­ways been dif­fi­cult but I’m optimistic,” said Na­bil yes­ter­day.

The 23-year-old’s first race re­sulted in a DNF in Bahrain in April while his most re­cent race in Bahrain ear­lier this month saw him fin­ish in 17th place.

Na­bil, who is in his first season with Tri­dent Mo­tor­sport, wants to over­come the bit­ter mem­ory of last year when he crashed.

Aside from the crash, Na­bil is also wary of the threat posed by Prema Rac­ing’s Charles Le­clerc and four-time Formula Three Euro­pean cham­pion An­to­nio Fuoco.

How­ever, Na­bil feels he is pre­pared for this week­end af­ter go­ing in and out of kart­ing and sim­u­la­tion.

“I have been do­ing a lot of kart­ing and on a sim­u­la­tor.

“The out­come was great and I feel more con­fi­dent, and I be­lieve that I can per­form bet­ter.” Farah Azharie
