JAKE’S WEEKEND REVIEW
“Firstly I’d like to say a huge thank you to Trevor and all of the Carlin team for asking me to step into the car this weekend. After a few months out of the cockpit it was always going to be tough to jump straight back in but overall I think we can be pleased with how we performed.
Ultimately, I hope I’ve done my best to help the team learn as much as they can with the car to keep pushing forwards over the coming races. Finally, I wish Kaylen all the best with his recovery and look forward to seeing him back in the car at Spa-Francorchamps.”
