Seb Priaulx's blog

The last time I blogged I was three meetings into my first season in the Formula 4 British Championship and it’s certainly been a rollercoaster ride since then, with six more weekends and a total of 27 races under my belt.

We’ve certainly had our fair share of highs and lows over the course of the season, but to come away with six podium finishes so far has been fantastic and it’s something I’m very proud of in my first season racing in single-seaters.

Our best weekend of the season so far came at Snetterton in August. I worked hard over the championship’s mid-season summer break to keep myself at the top of my game, and it was great to see that pay off as we returned to action in Norfolk.

With the Arden Motorsport team giving me a superb car, I enjoyed a brilliant first race as I managed to climb through from eighth on the grid to second place, before repeating that result in race two for my first British F4 double podium.

Further top three results at Rockingham and Knockhill mean that I’ve now passed thirty podium finishes in my car-racing career so far, which I’m truly delighted with as I head to the end of only my third year of competition.

It’s been an incredible journey so far and there’s been many memorable moments, but as a racing driver your focus always has to be looking forward to the next time you’re on track, whether it be a test, a qualifying session or a race.

I want to win. When I put on my race suit and helmet, I’m determined to go out there and be the best. It’s that hunger for success that drives me on and I work extremely hard to make sure I’m at my best technically, tactically, mentally and physically. 

The British F4 season comes to a close around the awesome Grand Prix circuit at Brands Hatch on September 29/30. I’ve won a race at Brands in each of my last four visits, so I’ll be giving it everything to try and continue that run and end our season on a high.

The final race of the year will be live on ITV4 so make sure you’re tuning in, and you can get updates on all my racing through my social media channels. Thank you for all the support so far!
