Jack Aitken: F2 collected the fastest young pilotsMay 5, 2019
Jack Aitken said that the transition immediately three pilots of the last Formula 2 season in F1 is an indicator of the strength of the championship, which competitors in recent years have ceased to exist. F2 as the official youth series of the World Championship is the last step before the top of motor racing, and the competition here is very high.
“Last year turned out to be a little crazy in the market of pilots, because in F1 there were suddenly a lot of empty seats,” said the pilot of the Campos official website of the championship. – This is significant in the sense that Formula 2 is coping with the task of training the highest level riders and the battle in it is denser than ever.
In the past, the best young pilots were dispersed in several series, whereas now they are all concentrated here, and this is good for the championship. “
The 23-year-old Englishman recently raised his status from a student at the Renault Youth Academy to a full-fledged test pilot of the team and considers the completion of the three-year course to be an important step on the way to Formula 1.
“Compared to last year, little has changed. In any case, I will come with the team to many stages, and if Sergey [Sirotkin] is busy, I will take the place of the test pilot, as it was in Australia. During the F2 stages I will be able to focus more on the work in this series, since the last year was very busy, ”said Aitken.
