Felix Rosenqvist is a driver that seems to ace any motorsport championship that is thrown his way. Whether that be single-seaters or endurance racing, he delivers top results in every discipline he does. Which is why it seems bizzare that this Swedish superstar of a driver has yet to race at Monaco professionally.
You know you must be pretty good at your job when you and your colleagues are able to win the greatest award in motorsport consecutively for three years…
Lead Engineer at Mercedes AMG F1, Dan Milner, has taken the time to review his year in motorsport exclusively with katyfairman.wordpress.com and talks about everything from being in the crowd in Spain when the two Mercedes collided to Rosberg’s shock retirement. All views in this interview are all his own.
2016 has been a crazy year for many individuals in the motorsport community – one of them being Tom Brooks. In an in-depth and exclusive interview, I caught up with Tom to discuss how he found himself in motorsport commentary, what he has been up to these past twelve months, as well as looking ahead to next year.
I have often been asked if I loved writing and found motorsport through the platform or if I started as a racing junkie and fell into the journalism side of things. For of those of you that are interested, it is the latter. Motorsport, especially Formula One, was something that was introduced to me at a young age. I certainly was not one of those children that found themselves being carted around the country watching motorsport trackside, it was more a case of having it on the television at the weekends because dad liked to watch it; no romanticised story behind it I’m afraid.
You sent me questions, I answered. Simple.
Q: Now that you have been out to a few a Grand Prix, what was the biggest thing that took you by surprise?
A: Without a doubt, the elevation changes on the racetracks.
Obviously visiting Belgium, I have been lucky enough to experience Eau Rogue in all its beautiful glory. It is evidently steep and is made a fuss of every time a racing series is held at the special track. However the elevation changes in locations like in Budapest and Monaco are also high but aren’t given nearly enough attention. Walking up the sidewalk from Sainte Devote to Beau Rivage was a challenge – simple as.The same goes for Hungary. From turn three into turn four is mega to use the most technical term.
