Autosport (UK) - - MCLAREN AUTOSPORT AWARD -

He says: “Win­ning the Mclaren BRDC Autosport Award was one of the proud­est mo­ments in my ca­reer. I re­mem­ber be­ing ner­vous be­fore­hand, but when my name was called out it was an awe­some feel­ing.

“There’s noth­ing bet­ter than get­ting be­hind the wheel of an F1 car and the Award gave me that first chance. From there I de­vel­oped a strong re­la­tion­ship with Mclaren, train­ing, de­vel­op­ing on the sim, which gave me an op­por­tu­nity to join the ju­nior pro­gramme.

“There is no doubt that with­out the help of the Mclaren Autosport BRDC Award, I wouldn’t be where I am now.”
