Do you have any hobbies outside of motorsport?

The hobbies I have outside of racing is going out with friends socialising, gym but most of all its mainly football im an avid Chelsea fan and I will always be watching and sometimes will go to Stanford Bridge if im not racing as its only 15 mins from where I live, I just love the atmosphere especially in major matches there nights you don’t forget. Also its great day out with the family which I don’t get to have to often.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I don’t have pre-race rituals as such but if I have a bad session or a bad day I start to change maybe into my other race boots my other gloves, I don’t know maybe it’s like being superstitious!

What are your motorsport career highlights?

My career highlight was the crossing the line and the sheer relief to become world champion from 4 years previous coming 2nd in the world finals in juniors and losing the lead on the last corner of the last lap. That’s two feelings ill never forget the ultimate high and one of the lowest lows.
