F1 » King stakes claim to be 'Britain's Next F1 Star'

Jordan King: “I've always looked up to the likes of Ayrton Senna, Lewis Hamilton and Kimi Raikkonen, but the closer I've got to where I want to be, I've realised that I don't want to be the next Lewis Hamilton. I want to be the first Jordan King.”

In the early 1990s an 8 year old started in cadet karts. His dad started saying things like "he's a natural" "Nigel Mansel says he's got what it takes to go all the way to F1".
Didn't see his name come up much in the results over the next few years though. About 6 years ago I saw him at Cadwell Park, competing in Formula VW (in German the phonetic sound for V is like F, though whether W is for one (unless spelt like won)I don't know!!
Whilst hopes & aspirations can be high. Massive grids at meetings in the UK alone says that there are thousands of budding F1 drivers throughout the world.
A TV program will not make the break through for anyone, only the utmost talent & a big bank balance.
Be confident young man but keep your feet firmly on the ground.
