Thursday 14th Mar 19 we travel to Monza, Italy a curcuit Steeped in history since The First F1 World Championships back in 1950 it’s been the home of Formula 1 in Italy except 1980 where it was held at Imola, So a bit about the circuit it has 7 rights & 4 lefts to make the 11 Turns of the 5.8km Monza, this high Speed track where the top speed down from Turn 11 of the parabollica and Turn 1 of Viriante is around 225 mph and with 2 DRS Zones makes it One of the fastest Circuits in the PSGL F7 Season. PSGL News caught up with rookie Foggy_908 who drives as a D2 for the Williams Racing F1 Team where we asked him on his thoughts on the season so far and his thoughts on The upcoming race on Thursday at Monza.
Q1: 9 races done and you have started in 5 of them, can you tell the readers why was this and how have you settled in your first season ?
A: Well I feel that the season has gone as well as expected for a debut season in the League, there have been a lot of things that I am still learning as I race but the team and my Team mate have been of fantastic support they really have supported me through the good and bad times in this season. Why have I missed 4 of the races so far ? Well simply put the first part of the year my Real Life Job has been a priority as it is a high demanding job, that said now they understand what it is the sport is and they now recognise it as such they are much more supportive and the team and league were fantastic to understand the situation which I am very greatful for.
Q2: What was you opinion on Spa and what actually happened ?
A: Well what can I say apart from everything that could of gone wrong went wrong, Qualifying went well with good pace but overall we didn’t strategy for the rain in the race to go on as long as it did even though the track was drying we didn’t have the pace then the worst happened the Car just shut down no Power, Telemtary nothing, we were all devistated in the team. But we have to move on and hold our heads high and take it as another lesson learnt. We are bringing our A-Game to Italy next week.
Q3: What was your most memorable moment in the Season so far and why ?
A: it would have to be Monaco the car, Setup and strategy was perfect and to come 3rd with my first podium on my second race was a real treat, was my first real taste of being competitive and close to winning the race there is nothing that can quite beat the feeing of being on that step and showing that even a rookie can show some pace and threat it was amazing and until I get on the Number 1 spot of that podium nothing will come close again for a while.
Q4: With Italy ahead what is your thoughts on the race ahead are you excited or worried ?
A: Excited it’s one of my favourite tracks of the season Fast, With Three Technical parts to the track makes it exciting and dangerous at the same time, feeling the car so close to the edge of slipping out from under you but having the confidence that the car will pull you through is such a rewarding experience and the Team are all putting 100% in to getting the car perfect for my next practice session later on today to get it ready for the qualifying session on Thursday at 8pm I’m feeling confident but it’s one of them tracks where anything can happen and you have to respect every corner otherwise your in the gravel trap or the barriers which obviously we don’t want or need, what we need is consitency and points and if we can pull everything we have in to this race and the next few races we have a good chance of making some serious threats to the Drivers and Constructors standings.
Q5: Who is your biggest threat/ Rival ?
A: Honestly I respect every driver on the grid right now they are all amazing people I’m still finding my feet with it all, maybe ask me this question in another year then I may let you know 😬.
Q6: Finally the big question will you stay with Williams for next season or look to other teams ?
A: Williams have been an amazing team and I am not moving from them at all, I respect my team mate and my work force with the highest regards plus they gave me my big break in to F7. I am very happy where I am, the car is great, minus the few gremlins we have with the car and above all they are just a top team to drive for in short I am going nowhere apart from sticking with Williams F1 Team.
More interviews with drivers to come thank you for reading and stay tuned for more news and drama as it comes in.
