Q&A: Oliver Turvey (Carlin Motorsport).

A lot of drivers see GP2 as the main feeder series for F1, but do you think the World Series is equally as good a stepping stone? Where do you hope to go from World Series?

OT:
World Series is a very strong series for drivers wanting to reach F1, it's helped drivers like [Robert] Kubica and [Sebastian] Vettel in the last few years, who both went straight from World Series to F1, so I think it's a strong series in that sense. Renault put on a really good show as well, they have massive crowds and it always has that feeling of being a big event. In terms of my ambitions beyond World Series, this year I'm just going to focus on my racing rather than wondering what might come next.

Q:
You nearly won the British F3 title at your first attempt, while also completing your undergraduate degree at Cambridge University last year. Do you think you could become a rookie World Series champion this season?

OT:
Yes, that's got to be the aim. I'm focusing on the testing at the moment, learning about the car and set-up changes and we'll see how the season goes from there. Hopefully, we can be up there challenging at the front of the grid.
