The video to the left is a video is from Silverstone GP. I used my new visor camera to give you a deeper insight into what I see as a driver. Throughout the day I was progressing forward in each session I had. By the end of the day, I had gained four seconds which is a massive improvement, here is what the Team Manager of Fortec, Oliver Dutton commented about my first time with the team:
" It was a pleasure having you with us and you did a great job, I know if you were out the following day you would make more improvements. Excellent job and we look forward to having you again soon. "
The video to the right is a video from Silverstone National. It was a thrilling experience to drive part of Silverstone where known Formula 1 Legends have raced such as Michael Schumacher and Sebastian Vettel. The aim for me was to gain more experience at a different track as well as feel the downforce of the car going through a flat corner such as copse. Overall I was within 2 seconds of the fastest Formula 3 driver there which I'm extremely happy with considering my last test which was July 2020.
The video to the left is when I went to Pembrey Race Circuit In July 2020. The main of objective was to gain more confidence in increasing brake efficiency in turn one and turn four. Throughout the video, I slowly am becoming more confident in the hard braking areas which made me quicker as well as becoming more consistent. By the end of the day, I had impressed the team with how I improved throughout the day and adapting quickly to the new advice given. Here are a few words from Chris Dittmann, the team principal of CDR:
" We are very impressed with how Ceran rapidly progressed throughout the day considering it is the second time he's driven the car. We are keen and confident that he can progress and start testing are more challenging tracks in the near future."
To the right is another clip of my simulator sessions. The track I was at was Croft. I haven't driven this track once, didn't even know where the corners were! The purpose of this was to mentally engage myself to try and figure how to take each corner from other tracks and to feel what gear felt right for each corner. It's beneficial for me as a racing driver to adapt quickly in a real life scenario. An example would be when I'm on a dry track and it suddenly becomes damp. Within a space of fifteen laps on my first session at this track, I had set a quick lap time of a 1 minute 16.4 seconds as well as being consistent within 1 to 2 tenths.
Here is a small statement from Chris Dittmann, the Team Principal sharing his thoughts from the session:
" I am beyond surprised on how fast you had adapted to track where you have never been before as well as me not giving you any guidance on what to do. I could see you were feeling the car on how each gear felt in each corner. I personally haven't seen this been done by any driver apart from you Ceran. "
