1. Will you be racing?
Yes I will :D

2. Were you happy with your result at the pre season race?
Unfortunately I couldn't race but just by seeing how well my teammate did I have a good idea of how my pace matches up against the rest, feeling quite confident

3. Are you happy with the car you and your teammate got?
Extremely, love the look of the Sauber and the sound of the Ferrari engines as well as having Nick as a teammate, couldn't have asked for more

4. What is your favourite Bahrain Grand Prix moment?
Can't really think of one, I guess I'd say the 2010 layout actually, made it more tricky and interesting

5. What is your dream roadcar?
Audi R8 V10, absolute beauty, a few sell for quite cheap where I live so I'm planning to get one soon :D

1. Will you be racing?
Hard to say. I can definetly confirm I'll be qualifying. Racing is still a bit up in the air.

2. Were you happy with your result at the pre season race?
Faultless drive. Didn't make a single mistake. No penalties, no binning it in the wall. Perfection in my eyes.

3. Are you happy with the car you and your teammate got?
Reliability is worrying. Low fuel drive-ability seems decent. High fuel we're completely in the dark.

4. What is your favourite Bahrain Grand Prix moment?
Probably when I won my debut F4 race.

5. What is your dream roadcar?
One that works. With my history with cars that's all I hope for.

1. Will you be racing?
Yup.

2. Were you happy with your result at the pre season race?
Can't say I was. Wing damage on the first lap really buggered my race up.

3. Are you happy with the car you and your teammate got?
I am indeed. I didn't start with Mclaren in career mode this year so the car is pretty fresh for me. Teammate is strong, we should do alright this season 🤞

4. What is your favourite Bahrain Grand Prix moment?
Duel in the desert is still a good one.

5. What is your dream roadcar?
Hmm. The Ferrari 812 Superfast is pretty tidy.

1. Will you be racing?
Yes

2. Were you happy with your result at the pre season race?
Nope, in qualy my performance was decent, but in the race i didn't had  the pace to battle for the podium. Also picked up damage on lap 1 and 10 so that made it also very difficult to get a good result.

3. Are you happy with the car you and your teammate got?
Yes, the Toro Rosso is a amazing car with a great sounding Honda engine. I'm also very happy to have Joe as my teammate because he is a very good driver and we will both hopefully have some wins to also challenge for the constructors championship.

4. What is your favourite Bahrain Grand Prix moment?
2014, the battle between Rosberg and Hamilton is the most memorable thing i remember when i think about the Bahrain Grand Prix.

5. What is your dream roadcar?
Mercedes AMG C63 S

1. Will you be racing?
Yes I will be, looking forward to it.

2. Were you happy with your result at the pre season race?
Yes my pace was good I could have done better in qualy though. I got the bs 5 second penalty which cost me the win but the pace was there at a track I struggled at in F5.

3. Are you happy with the car you and your teammate got?
Car seems okay, haven’t really driven it too much so we’ll see how we get on with it. Very happy with my teammate looking forward to being back on track with him!

4. What is your favourite Bahrain Grand Prix moment?
Desert duel!

5. What is your dream roadcar?
Hmmmm, Audi R8 does sound nice I have an A1 now and in the showroom the R8 just looks incredible.

Qualifying - P19
Well to keep it PG, I fully messed that up. Did my soft lap too early so attempted to do a super lap at the end and aim for P11. Slowed down to avoid getting into the top 10 but massively misjudged it and only improved by a hundredth.

Race - P6
Don’t think I’ve had this much fun since someone sent my the Jolyon Palmer crash compilation. Just slowly made my way up the field, avoiding any carnage, re-enacted Lewis Hamilton’s triple overtake into T1 on the way. Made it to my pitstop and came out just behind Joruroo. Just sat behind him until the last few laps, making him use up ERS, tyres and giving him less of a chance to come back at me if I passed. Managed it in the final few laps and managed to catch Lordy on the final lap. He lost it on the second to last corner forcing me wide and picking up an unfortunate penalty but can’t really complain with P19-P6.
