Correa: “We still have some work to do”

challengesJuan Manuel Correa is Ready for New Challenges in Formula 2

Van Amersfoort Racing‘s Juan Manuel Correa remains hungry for better results despite a recent upturn in form.

The American recorded his best result of the season in Saturday’s sprint race with a fifth place finish, having spent the first half of the race in the podium positions.

The result was a continuation of the good pace he showed in Friday’s qualifying session, where he qualified in twelfth position.

When discussing his one lap pace, Juan Manuel described it as “decent”, but acknowledged it still wasn’t quite where he would have hoped.

“I wouldn’t say it was good. Our goal has been to put it in the top ten, and we still haven’t had a qualifying in the top ten, so that’s a bit frustrating.

Despite being left frustrated, he did allude to improvements since the start of the season.

“I do see a big improvement within myself, within the team as well, and the way I am understanding how to drive this car.

“Every weekend, I’m still learning a lot. I feel like my confidence [and] my driving level is getting higher and higher, so that makes me happy.

“But we still have some work to do. In free practice, we were really nowhere. So, we need to work on a baseline that suits my style a little better. I think soon, we will start qualifying consistently in the top ten, and that will mean possible podiums and more points finishes.

The VAR driver will be hoping learnings from the first half of the season will lead to improvements as he pushes for more points in the remaining races of 2023.
