Formula Renault 2.0

France F4 champion in 2011, Matthieu Vaxiviere struggled on his Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 debut last year. Putting that all behind him at Motorland Aragon with two wins, the Frenchman has every intention of following up with another big weekend at Spa-Francorchamps.

Matthieu, it must have felt great to get back to winning ways?
Absolutely! Last season was very tough but I never let my head drop. The team and my entourage opened my eyes about all the work I had to and it’s brought results.
I hope the bad times are behind me now because I’m thrilled with the way I’ve started the year. There’s still a long way to go this season, and I’m going to approach each meeting as if it were the start of a new championship.

Has staying with Tech 1 Racing worked to your advantage?
I have a very good understanding with the team. We worked together to overcome last year’s challenges and staying with them seemed to me to be the right choice, if not an obvious one. I’ve got a fantastic relationship with every member of the team and it’s important to build on a solid base.

You’re 18 and you’ve already had experience of single-seater racing in Eurocup Formula Renault 2.0 as well as GT and electric cars in the Andros Trophy. Would you describe yourself as a Jack of all trades?
I love the thrill of it. I get a huge rush when I’m at the wheel and there’s no place where I’m happier. Whenever I get a chance to drive I just can’t say no. My objective is still F1 but I’m having fun at the moment, especially with this recent success.
