Our man behind the wheel
Formula Two operates at a ‘level playing field’ with every competitor being provided with the same components and quality of equipment. F2’s unique format therefore places the onus solely on the driver to deliver the results.

He has already broken the record for consecutive F2 race wins with victories in the first four races of the season at Silverstone, England and Portimão, Portugal. He currently stands 44 championship points ahead of the field after the first six rounds. For the full F2 Championship standings, click here.
