The weekend was the make or break of the championship. Silverstone has always been the weakest circuit on the calendar for us, not forgetting how competitive the championship has got in the space of a year.

“Unfortunately, the weekend took a turn for the worst and it soon became clear it was going to be difficult to stay in the hunt for the championship. Qualifying 25th on the grid was not the way I wanted to start Sunday off. After the situation that occurred on the day left us out of the championship come the end of Race 2, it was a real shame to not be able to head into the last round with a shot in defending my title, but luck hasn’t been on our side this year.

“I am looking forward to Brands to try and end the season on a high and to come away with the most race wins would be great…!”
