Callum Ilott - FIA Formula Two, Round Five, Great Britain


Callum’s first weekend on home soil was a roller coaster affair, with the 21-year-old claiming another front-row start for the Feature Race, meaning he’s qualified in the top four at every round this season - the only driver on the Formula Two grid that can boast such a statistic.


An unfortunate stall on the Feature Race grid left him starting from the pit-lane but a sublime recovery drive saw him storm back to fifth place. Followed by another tense Sprint Race, which saw Callum retire after an uncharacteristic spin, the Brit had a remarkably hectic weekend.


This time around, Callum re-enters the Silverstone paddock with full confidence, using his superb qualifying and race pace as markers for another strong weekend.


“Last weekend was equally fun and frustrating. Our qualifying pace is perhaps the highest it's ever been right now and, looking at how we fought back to fifth in the Feature Race, our race pace is also looking pretty good. Barring any more dramas this weekend, we can hopefully score the results that our efforts deserve.”

Jake Hughes - FIA Formula Three, Round Five, Great Britain


Last weekend saw Jake score the best results of his season so far, with a fourth place finish in the first race and tenth in the second - scoring an invaluable 13 points in total.


All in all, the 26-year-old has performed as the de facto leader at HWA RACELAB as he’s scored more than 75% of their points tally so far. With another two races around his favourite circuit of Silverstone, Jake is confident he can further add to that total and even challenge for the podium places.


“Silverstone is one of my all-time favourite tracks so I’m really pleased we get to do another weekend here. Our pace was strong across the board last weekend and we were definitely in with a shout at a podium so I’m looking forward to having another shot at it. The weather looks to be hot again so we’ll see how that plays out but overall we should be looking at another good weekend.”
