A self-professed adrenaline junkie who thrives on speed and challenges, the young racer fell in love with karting over ten years ago.

Of his first formula test and race at Sepang he says: “my approach is to take it slowly, step by step. As its my first time here I like the Sepang track with a really nice mix of highspeed corners and long straights.”

Inspired by Sebastian Vettel and Fernando Alonso, David pledges to do everything he can to succeed and keep fighting for the win. This young driver with big dreams believes confidence is the key to success in racing.
