“It was unfortunate, but we showed the pace and the potential is there and that is what we were looking for from the Winter Series. We were just looking to get on the pace and see where we were. I am very happy we did that,” added the Accelerate Driver Development Ltd (ADD)-affiliated youngster. “I think everyone around me, Craig Dolby, my driving coach and the team, were pleased. We just need to iron out a few issues and then we will get stronger and stronger.”
Liam will now head home to South Africa for a bit, before returning to Europe for a series of three tests ahead of the start of the European Formula 3 Open championship 'proper' at Paul Ricard on April 26-28.
“I am popping back to Johannesburg because after this it is really, really busy. I will be in South Africa for six days then I fly straight to Barcelona for a two-day test. Then within a week or two of that, we test at Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium and then we go to Silverstone to test on the grand prix circuit. So even though the next race is a month and a half away, we are still going to be very busy.
“Overall, I'd say doing these two Winter Series events have been very useful and I have learnt loads. I am very happy with everything. I don't think we expected to be as competitive as we are and I am really looking forward to going back to Paul Ricard next month for the first official championship race.
“We were so close to success at Jerez that I just really want to get out there again now and try and finish the job off,” he concluded.
