Maloney: Silverstone ‘Good for Confident Drivers’


Zane Maloney is currently fourth in the FIA Formula 2 Championship. He won both races in Bahrain and finished third in the Melbourne Feature Race and Imola Sprint Race.

According to Maloney, Silverstone is a hard circuit to drive, but this should not affect drivers currently achieving good results in the championship such as Paul Aron, Franco Colapinto and Gabriel Bortoleto.

‘’Generally, one of the most technical tracks on the calendar and it’s a circuit that I’d say is good for confident drivers.’’

The unpredictability of the weather in England means that drivers and teams should continue to work together as equal partners in order to succeed at Silverstone this week.

‘’Obviously you are in the UK so it can rain at any moment, it can also be sunny at any moment, so the strategy is always a big thing at Silverstone.’’

Maloney remembers last year’s Feature Race, where there were incidents involving Frederik Vesti, Dennis Hauger and Roman Stanek (on Lap 11) and Kush Maini and Ralph Boschung (on Lap 17). He sees tyre degradation as a big problem if there is no rain during the Sprint and Feature races.

‘’so for sure there is always a lot of drama at Silverstone, and generally when it’s a dry race there is a lot of degradation”

Maloney also hopes to win the Feature Race.

‘’We finished second last year at Silverstone, so I guess we can only do one better than second’’
