FR3.5 »

Q&A: Nadia Morini (Draco Racing).

One 'scoop' at the moment in the world of motorsport is the birth of a new category for the 2010 season: GP3. It appears that the preferred route for drivers will consist of [F1 support categories] FBMW, GP3 and GP2 before finally reaching the much-dreamed of F1. In this case, the World Series would remain on the outside, and with fewer drivers. Will a team like Draco be affected by these changes, or does it not have any fear because of the new development programme that we have just talked about?

Nadia Morini:
If the World Series teams can be strong and professional, then GP3 will have its life and we'll have ours. What is really important is to choose how to make a championship by focusing on care of the drivers and their careers. There will always be drivers who will pass to F1 via the World Series, just as there will be those from the future GP3 and others who will never go in this formula. A lot depends on the drivers because they must demonstrate their talent.

The mentioned route is just one example. Drivers in the various Formula Renault championships arrive in World Series, which is another valid and strengthened route, formed of championships with many years behind them - namely the FRenault national championships, the Eurocup, World Series and F1. It is the same. I want to bring back the words that Renault director Rémi Deconinck said at a briefing held in Barcelona on this subject:

"Renault was the first to want to make a chain for young drivers, many categories are created and finished, and we are still here. We know that this is a time of crisis, but we are working hard to be close to the teams and in line with the decisions that must be taken to ensure that the crisis passes. As demonstration of what I said, we have announced live TV coverage from Eurosport for 2009 and beyond. In July, there will be a presentation to give the team the guidelines for the 2010 championship.. We want to fight with even more force in this period."

After these words, I can only add that Draco fights together with Renault and RPM, with passion and determination. And as RPM president Jaime Alguersuari says: 'I'm here and here I remain!'.
