“I love this car!”
Liam talks about his post-season F1 test on 22nd December with Oracle Red Bull Racing, driving 111 laps in Sergio Perez’s car (#36) for the day, while Perez and later Max Verstappen shared the #1.
“Days like today are very important. F1 testing is very limited, so track time is extremely valuable and I’m grateful that I got to drive and to help the Team with development for next year. But also, for myself, it’s really important as well. It’s so different to anything else we drive.
“Obviously, you go from junior categories to prepare for it, but honestly, nothing can. And today the sessions went really well. After a full day, I definitely feel more comfortable in the car and hopefully I’ll get more opportunities like this in the future.”
Lawson finished the day a little over 4/10ths of a second behind Verstappen with 5th & 10th fastest times of the day respectively. Perez was .5s behind Lawson in 13th. However, both cars were doing different testing so overall the times are non-comparable.
