Maloney ‘Really Looking Forward’ to Racing in Jeddah

Rodin Carlin’s Zane Maloney spoke to the media ahead of this weekend’s round in Saudi Arabia.

He discussed the track and his personal aims for the round. Due to the nature of the track and the reverse-grid format for the Sprint Races, many drivers, including Maloney will look to qualify as high up the grid as possible on Friday.

“I’ve never raced here in Jeddah but it looks like a crazy circuit. Of course, it’s a street circuit so we need to get our heads around that. I’m sure that in practice it’s going to be all about building up to it and keeping it out of the wall initially. Then building on what you need to do for Qualifying.”

“I think that the important section is T4 to T10. It’s the most, I’d say, sketchy section. You need to be very precise. Not just certain corners, for the whole track you need to be switched on.”

“The main thing to improve on from Bahrain is to put together a lap in Qualifying. We were really quick all weekend but I made a mistake in Qualifying. So, yes, put together a lap and then hopefully be closer to the front and work from there. I’m really looking forward to it.”

Maloney was rated very highly on our Instagram‘s poll for Driver of the Round in Bahrain. He had an impressive debut round and will be looking to improve on that in Jeddah.
