Biography

“I’m thrilled to be part of the W Series Academy this season. It’s a dream come true and I’m still pinching myself. All my life, I’ve had my sights set on Formula 1, and now my racing career has taken a big step in the right direction thanks to W Series. There’s still a lot of work to do, and every day I’m learning because everything is still new to me. I’ve enjoyed every moment so far learning what it takes to become a professional driver, and I’m going to give it my all both on and off the track.

“I never knew what training meant until I spent the last few weeks with W Series’ professional trainers, but I’m making big gains in both my physical strength and mental focus. I’m also super excited to be team-mates with Juju this year, and my hope is that, together, we can demonstrate to the world what the next generation of racing drivers from Asia can do. It’s been a whirlwind, and I’m looking forward to a couple of weeks at home in the Philippines before my W Series debut in Miami in May.”
