Day 2 of the Abu Dhabi young driver test and 18 year old Estonian racing driver Kevin Korjus was driving the LRGP R31 today, making his debut in an F1 car after an impressive first season in Formula Renault 3.5 which saw him take 3 wins including his second race in the series – making him the series youngest ever race winner.
Kevin: “It was very much a learning day for me – my first chance to drive the R31. The main priority was to give me a little bit of assessment; I gradually built up my confidence, and then by lunchtime I was feeling pretty comfortable with things. I was looking forward to doing some hard laps, but I must say it was really hard especially for my neck, physically and to learn all the buttons, and to do everything at the correct time. It is very different from the World Series.
Sounds like one to watch out for in the future.
