Round seven of the 2022 FIA Formula 2 championship is at Silverstone and Carlin driver Liam Lawson is confident his team can continue to provide him with a good car.

Red Bull Junior Team driver Lawson says it’s “about time” that he put some “really good points on the board,” at the team’s home race.

New Zealander Lawson’s confidence comes from the Farnham-based team being quick “pretty much everywhere” this season and that Silverstone is place he likes.

“It’s got a lot of history and it’s a unique track,” the 20-year-old explained, adding “My favourite section would definitely be Maggotts-Becketts. That’s unique and in a high downforce single-seater, it’s an epic section to drive through.

“That’s also a very important part of the lap as well when it comes to lap time. Having a good run through there is key.”

Lawson can draw further confidence from his F3 success at Silverstone, where he scooped a victory and a podium in the two Feature Race’s held at the circuit in 2020, when Formula 3 and Formula 2 had two rounds in Britain.

Racing for Hitech GP in 2021, Lawson scored points in both Formula 2 Sprint Races before missing out in the Feature Race.

After a strong start to the 2022 season, with three podiums in the first three races, including winning the Sprint Race in Jeddah, Lawson’s season has been hit by inconsistency and retirements, leaving the Kiwi 10th in the drivers’ standings with 44-points.
