As they take on the current Formula One® season, it means more confidence in their car, extra power in their hands, increased engine reliability on the track and more chances to find the podium.

He is the youngest driver to lead a lap during a Formula One Grand Prix, the youngest driver to set the fastest lap during a Formula One Grand Prix and the youngest driver to win a Formula One Grand Prix.
