Lucas, Daniele and Shanaka set for exciting home races

There’s plenty of excitement going into this week’s F1 Esports Pro Series Event as the triple-header of Silverstone, Spa and Monza is sure to be thrilling.

Lucas Blakeley and Shanaka Clay are set to take on their home race at Silverstone, which is also a home event for the team!

Daniele Haddad will then fight for honours in his home race at Monza alongside Shanaka, following the race at Spa in which the Italian will partner Lucas.

Before they jump into their virtual RP20s, the trio give their take on the racing ahead.

Lucas, what makes the upcoming Event so special?

“Event Three is all about the history of Formula 1 and Silverstone, Spa and Monza have all played big parts in it.

“They’re very unique in style and challenge compared to some of the other circuits this season. I really enjoy driving at high-speed circuits that have little room for error.”

Shanaka, how does it feel to take part in the team’s home race?

"I’m really proud to be racing for the team in its home event, especially as it’s also mine!

“Looking at Silverstone, Spa and Monza, I’m confident we can be strong at all of them – we were fast in the high-speed Austria race last time out, for example.”

Daniele, Monza will be your home event and you have form there. What can we expect this time around?

“This Event has the potential to be the most exciting of the season as it’s three very special tracks in Silverstone, Spa and Monza.

“It might be virtual, but even on the F1 2020 video game, Monza feels like a home race and I’m definitely targeting a strong result for the team.

“It’s important not to get carried away though, we’ve seen in every race this season just how close the margins are and there’s no reason why it would be any different this time.”

Lucas, Daniele and Shanaka – what is the goal for this event?

Lucas: “It’s a varied challenge for all of the field. Silverstone has some amazing corners, while Spa is the longest track on the calendar and then is Monza is rightly known as the temple of speed.

“We’ll be targeting good points for the team and we’re confident we can perform strongly at the tracks.”

Shanaka: “We’ll get a real idea of our potential in qualifying and we’ve seen how crucial that is in this year’s series.

“If we can execute well in qualifying, I’m confident we can score some good points and make progress in Event Three.”

Daniele: “We’ll go into the Event focussed and determined, the goal is to score points more regularly and climb the Constructors’ Championship standings.”
