Here is what some of the drivers have thought of the season so far

Marcel Kiefer – Red Bull

“The level of competitiveness is definitely super high this year. One of the new guys that has come in Bari Boroumand is super quick and I would already rate him as one of the fastest on the grid.

What he’s done in league racing and his raw pace is super fast.

There are definitely a few additions to the grid that are super quick. The speed of everyone probably does mean that it is more competitive than last year.”

Lucas Blakeley – Aston Martin

“We have got a lot more things right this year from the beginning.

I’ve put a lot of work in personally in the off season for months and months, not necessarily on the F1 game.

I focussed on utilising every aspect that would help me to go quick and that doesn’t necessarily mean improving lines into corners.

I’ve been optimising every area that I physically can and I’ve become a more complete driver.”

Sebastian Job – Alpha Tauri

“The one thing I’ve learnt is to surround yourself with people that are better than you and then you can learn from them.

That’s what I’ve done coming to a new game, I’m surrounded by people that are better than me at this game and it gives me the perfect way to improve.

The speed at which I’m improving is really promising and that’s because of my teammates.”

Josh Idowu – McLaren

“We’re looking very strong [heading into Event 2], in particular Bari [Boroumand] who had some crazy pace from the first event.

Especially in qualifying which I would say is the hardest part. Once he can get it together in the race, I would expect a lot of wins from him.”
