the 18-year-old Christian Lundgaard was Wednesday again, a little taste of motor sport kongeklasse, when he at the Jerez circuit in southern spain testing a former Formula 1-racer from Renault.
The Danish teen travelled 465 miles, and it was a great experience to sit behind the many horsepower in the car, although he also tried it in Budapest in mid-september.
Physically, it was an effort, and he was challenged in a good way. The he says to TV3 Sport.
- It has been interesting. The weather was a little different compared to Budapest. I had been running a lot of laps, and I'm a little sore in the body, but it should be.
- It is a different feeling than driving a Formula 3 car because of the downforce and power. All the things you need to keep in mind and change while running, can make one confused. This is an experience you should have under the skin, for then it becomes much easier, he says.
Christian Lundgaard is associated with Renault's youth academy. Renault managing director Cyril Abiteboul said in september that the team from the 2021 season, will have a Formula 1-running with the past at the team's academy.
the Team is therefore in the process of gathering information, who to bet on.
Although the dane drove in a former Formula 1 racer, it was not 100 percent a copy of the equipment, as the team's Formula 1 drivers use.
- unfortunately, It is not the same deck that you would use for the races, but it should be someone who is a bit, says Lundgaard.
He runs on a daily basis in the Formula 3 series.
