F1 in Oliver Rowland's sights

At Le Mans last September, Oliver Rowland won what should remain as the last Drivers' title awarded in Formula Renault 3.5, following the withdrawal of the Diamond brand from the World Series and the takeover by RPM Racing under the name Formula 3.5 V8.

The Fortec Motorsports resident this year is now studying his options for the 2016 season. Supported by the Racing Step Foundation and close to Derek Warwick, former driver F1 and president of the BRDC (British Racing Drivers' Club), several tracks seem to stand out.

“The World Series is a sector full of qualities and I think there is no better school to progress as a driver, admits the 23-year-old Briton. And none of what I say will prove as much as what your former students are accomplishing in F1 today. I still have to wait to know my future, but it is not impossible that I join them…”

“We are talking to several people about his future. Many were convinced of his incredible talent. Many teams involved in the GP2 Series have inquired and we are also in contact with two F1 teams, and others in DTM."
