Five of PROpeak Performance’s young drivers – David Griessner (24/AUT), Jérémie Lesoudier (23/FRA), Akhil Rabindra (22/IND), Jérémy Sarhy (19/FRA) and Florian Thoma (23/CHE) – are among the 23 participants, selected by a jury, for the 2019 Aston Martin Racing (AMR) Driver Academy. The winner will sign a factory driver contract for 2020 as an official AMR Junior.
Christoph Esser, team principal PROpeak Performance: “Congratulations to our five drivers! Of course, we are very proud that they have mastered the selection process. Everyone now has a great opportunity to become junior factory driver. We will support every single one of them in the best possible way.”
AMR invites drivers to various seminars. So Griessner and Sarhy were at the media training in the AMR headquarters in Banbury, England, already this week. In addition, every driver is supported by a mentor. Finally, the criteria of speed, consistency, technical feedback, teamwork, strategy, fitness, PR and the overall approach are evaluated.
