Vesti thinks he’s Driving At His Highest Level

Vesti on whether he’s driving at the highest level of his career: “I would definitely say so”

Fredrik Vesti is performing admirably in Formula 2, he leads the championship and says he is driving at the highest level of his career.

The PREMA driver qualified in second place in Austria behind pole sitter, FIA F3 champion Victor Martins.

The Mercedes Junior was asked by insideF2 whether he is driving at the highest level of his career.

“I would definitely say so, of course, it’s an evolution and some seasons are better than others.

“I think last year I learned a lot, some races were really strong, others not so much but this year I’ve managed to put the good things that I’ve learned through the years and together with PREMA really delivering as best as I can.”

Vesti also heaped praise on his engineer and his ability to keep him in the correct frame of mind to maximise the Dane’s potential.

“No doubt that my engineer Pedro is helping me a lot to stay in the right mindset and just to keep pushing in the right direction and for me, it’s something that’s building over time.”

The 20-year-old explained that his frame of mind developed over time and it wasn’t the work of a moment and he progressed through the ranks to Formula 2.

“It’s not something that happened overnight. It’s a mindset that builds for a long time and it’s really nice to continue doing that.”

Vesti holds a slim 11-point advantage over Frenchman Theo Pourchaire at the top of the championship ahead of a very busy month of July which sees four events hosted.

The PREMA driver has scored three wins so far this season during his second season in Formula 2.
