Formula Renault 2.0

Alex Riberas (18) is about to start his third season in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0, in which he has already one win and five podium finishes. Sixth in 2011 and a genuine title contender with Josef Kaufmann Racing Team This time around, the Spaniard reveals the secrets of the Motorland Aragon track.

1 We’re in seventh going into Turn 1. You need to be firm and precise on the brakes here because if you miss the apex, then you won’t see the exit. Get the turn right and you’re in good shape for the climb that follows.

2 Turns 4 and 5 are, in actual fact, a sweeping left-hander with a double apex. You take the first part flat out and then you have to brake and flick down the gears while staying right on line.

3 It’s uphill all the way to this point, but as soon as you hit the brakes in Turn 8 you’re going down. You’re blind going into the corkscrew, which starts with a right turn followed by a left.

4 In a race you need to get the exit just right here to get a tow in the long straight and then have a go at the entrance to what is a really tight hairpin.

5 It’s the only turn in the championship that we take in first gear. You have to wait until the wheels are straight before stepping on the gas again, and you need to make sure you don’t drift off to the right either.
