IN HIS OWN WORDS:

In his own words: “I’m so excited to join Carlin for the 2018 Verizon IndyCar Series season. They were a big part of launching my career when I raced in Europe and we had a lot of success together back in 2005 in the British Formula Three Championship. It seems like everything fell into place at the right time to have this opportunity to work with Trevor and the whole Carlin team again.”
