Formula Renault 3.5

The Arden Caterham driver is returning to the scene of his first ever Formula Renault 3.5 Series win. Currently fifth in the standings, the Portuguese shared his thoughts with us before the meeting in Hungary.

You’ve had a bit of a struggle in 2013 after bursting on to the scene last year. Why is that?

I can honestly say that every time I arrive at the track I’m in the same frame of mind as I was last year. We’re working hard to get on pole and win races but we’ve made a few mistakes. I’ve got no other option now but to go out and win.

How did it feel to go to Silverstone for the Formula One Young Driver Test with Red Bull?

It was tough on my neck but that’s how you learn. To adapt to the car you have to use your head more than your talent. It’s up to me now to push on and have a great career in F1. That’s what Red Bull and I both want.

How do you feel about the meeting in Hungary?

It’s not my favourite circuit but it’s always great to be in Budapest, which is a fantastic city! I won three races there last year, one of them in Formula Renault 3.5 Series, so I can hardly say that I dislike it either.
