You are now facing a major challenge with this switch from karting to the Formula 4. Are the nerves getting to you already?
Well, nerves not really, but I can hardly wait for the new season to start. I have now spent eight years in karting at the highest level and have been successful in a number of series, so the move up into Formula 4 is the next logical step for me. Many motor racing drivers enjoying success today in a huge variety of series moved up to join one of the junior formula series after karting.
In BWT Mücke Motorsport, you have the backing of a team that is considered to be one of the biggest promoters of junior talent in single-seater racing…
That was also the main reason for me to sign up with BWT Mücke Motorsport. The team works to a highly professional standard across the board. The mechanics are talented and experienced – but at the same time you are always being challenged. It’s a bit like being at school: if you want to be one of the best, then you have to work hard for it. I train a lot and try to test as often as possible. Every kilometre on the track in Formula 4 is worth its weight in gold.
What targets have you set yourself for your rookie year?
First of all, I want to learn as much as possible. This is essential for any ambitious racing driver. Furthermore, my stated objective is to win the rookie title in the German and Italian championships. The field of contestants in both series is of a very high calibre, which means that it’s not going to be easy. At the same time, I’m convinced that I have the necessary speed and that that my team provide me with the optimum support. To be contesting my first year in Formula 4 with a team such as BWT Mücke Motorsport is a great honour for me.
