Confidence comes from within

Sponsored by Comma, Jolyon Palmer is a British racing driver in the highly competitive international GP2 championship, a recognised ‘feeder’ series to Formula 1.

He has marked himself out as one of the brightest young prospects in world motorsport, following a promising debut GP2 season in 2011 with Arden International where he secured a string of top 10 results, followed by a maiden podium for Addax during the GP2 Finals event in Abu Dhabi.

In 2012, he moved to British team iSport International, competing in an increased 12-round GP2 calendar. He enjoyed an impressive campaign including a maiden win in the showpiece Monaco event, together with two further podiums at Silverstone and Monza. Despite a series of electrical issues blighting his first four events, he finished 11th in the drivers’ standings.

Now sponsored by Comma, Jolyon remained in GP2 in 2013, joining the Carlin team, one of the most widely respected outfits in world motorsport, and to whom Comma was also Technical Partner. Early season points finishes in the top ten were punctuated by two retirements before it all came together with Jolyon’s maiden GP win in Hungary. He followed this later in the season with another outstanding victory in the Singapore Feature race where he claimed the rare distinction of scoring maximum race points for pole position, fastest lap and the race win. Four retirements during the season cost him dear, but he nevertheless ranked as the most improved driver of the championship, setting himself up for a major challenge for the title in 2014.
