MY FORMULA E MISSION WITH HWA RACELAB
Today, a new racing series, a new challenge and a new team for me has been announced: I will be making my Formula E debut in the 2018/19 season as a member of the HWA RACELAB squad.
I am honoured that HWA have signed me for their Formula E programme: HWA are such a great team with a long and successful history in motorsport. All the people I’ve met so far are really passionate about racing. Also, it´s great to work alongside such an experienced driver as Gary Paffett, the newly crowned DTM champion.
I am pretty sure that we will benefit from each other during the season. Although we are all newbies to the series, I have no doubt that we will have a steep learning curve. However, it won’t be easy.
My objective is therefore to become competitive in the series as soon as possible and to make a good impression.
At the same time, I would like to thank everyone at McLaren for having supported me throughout the last seven years, starting with the Young Drivers’ Programme days, through to my two seasons as a test driver and finally, as a Formula1 driver.
Over these fantastic years I have met incredibly skilled and caring people who have made me feel part of the family, I have learned about discipline, tricks and patience and I am proud to say, today I am a better driver. Big dank je!
