Q&A: Tom Chilton

Max has done really well. He finished fourth in F3 at a very young age and also finished fourth in GP2, like with all drivers, he did have bad luck and you could also say drivers' excuses. He had two or three clutches break on him, so I think he could've finished as runner-up in that championship, which would've put him higher than Jenson Button before he made his switch to F1 at roughly the same age.

I know that Max has the pace. Last year in GP2, in the second half of the season, when his team, Carlin Motorsport, got to grips with the chassis, he was qualifying on the front row and won two races, so he has done really well.

In a way, he is a bit like me in WTCC; we've got the pace, but had extremely bad luck. I don't think Max's results have really reflected his true pace this season so far, due to a bit of bad luck that he has endured in the first seven races in his Formula One career.
