“I have known Vincent since he began racing go-karts. He and my son were teammates at Kart In Pro for a season. During his rookie year, he proved how fast he was. Off track, he is mentally strong and already very mature for a young driver. Crowned in the Blancpain Sprint Series in 2015, he revealed great adaptation abilities, which is uncommon for a young driver!
My goal for Vincent is to bring him up to a professional level in the closed-cockpit categories. Formula 1 and other open-wheel series are not the only options for a career in motor sports. A lot of great drivers build fantastic international careers in other forms of racing. I am glad to guide and advise Vincent in his career. The more I do it and the more I enjoy sharing my experience with the young generation, which will soon bring us some exciting racing world-wide”.
