With the start of the 2015 season set to begin this weekend, Tatiana Calderon is prepared and confident for the first event at Silverstone.
Tatiana Calderon will be set to join English based team, Carlin Motorsports and be an addition to the team’s famed list of drivers. Carlin is one of the largest teams in the FIA F3 field with cars in eight other series. Carlin and Calderon will be a great match both with hopes to lock down the Championship title.
After two collective tests during the off-season and a few adjustments, Calderon is confident for the start of the season in her Volkswagen powered Dallara. With impressive feedback and connection to her team, the duo are prepared for the start of the season which begins this weekend at the famous Silverstone Circuit.
The Silverstone Circuit is one of the most well-known tracks not only throughout Europe, but also in the world. The 5.8 km Northamptonshire circuit has been home to a selection of the top racing series throughout Europe including Formula 1, DTM, GP2 and GP3. As the season begin, Tatiana goes into the first event with enthusiasm to prove herself. Going out of last year’s season with a fifth place finish at Spa-Francorchamps, Calderon hopes to surpass that. Based on how off-season testing and discussion has been going, it is a feasible goal for Tatiana and her team.
“This will be a challenging year, I will be racing for one of the best teams in F3 so I expect to be fighting for the top. The series is getting stronger each year, with more than 35 cars entered. So this level will be extremely high but that’s what makes you push yourself to the limit. I have a great opportunity to show what I a capable of. I am taking one day at a time, going step by step and trying to give my 100% every time out on track.”
“Silverstone is a tricky circuit to start the season off. It is a high speed track, almost 6km long and very demanding on is very demanding on the tires. The weather is unpredictable and the wind direction changes often which makes it very challenging. You have to be able to adapt to the track conditions quickly. I will try and do my best to start off the season on the right foot.”
