I started my career shortly before the season started and it has been a really cool time. I got to design my car in the colors and style of the Austrian flag, where I am from. The car looks really cool I think! I hope others like it as much as I like it.
In the first race, I did not do very well. I qualified at 32nd and then ended the race 30th. I guess top 30 was still a success for the first race? I know I only joined but I still wanted more success!
The second race was immediately better. I qualified at 14 and then ended the race 8th. My first top ten race! It was exciting and I was very happy and celebrated with my team. I want to thank Danny Vandoorne who helped me a lot and gave me advice as a driver and I think his help made me drive so much better.
The third race I was not good in the qualifying at 25 but then the race was great and I got all the way to 6th! Another improvement and another top ten race.
The fourth race was my best so far. I was even top ten in qualifying at 9 and then raced to 5th in the race. My first ever top five race and the third top ten in four races.
The fifth race was a step back. I qualified at 34 and then got to 24th in the end. After three straight top ten places that was disappointing.
On the season I am now 8th in the standings, which is crazy! I never expected to be that high up. My goal is to stay up so high now and to get into the top ten in the end of the year standings. I also hope to continue to help my team and we can win the team cup! Maybe I can try to win a race!
