You know you are up against the best drivers on the road to F1. There will be many challenges ahead as a team, I feel we have what it takes to tackle those challenges. I’m very grateful to my sponsors for their continued support and for making this possible.”
Speaking about the team’s newest signing, Trevor Carlin said, “We’re delighted that Kaylen will stay with us for the 2021 season.
