MAZDASPEED driver Conor Daly, heads to Monza, Italy this weekend to close out his rookie GP3 season on one of the world’s fastest Grand Prix circuits. His plan is to continue the upward momentum that almost every race weekend has brought with Spa, Francorchamps two weeks ago being Daly’s best qualifying (6th) and race finish (5th) of the season,
He will carry to Monza some impressive credentials, despite the difficulty experienced during his first season of European racing. He has been recognized as “the best passer in GP3” by America’s Speed channel television announcer, Will Buxton, in recognition of the aggressive passing moves he has been making since Valencia, Spain, in June. Despite his aggressive style, his consistency has been impressive as he is one of only three drivers including the championship’s top two drivers, Finn, Valteri Bottas & Britain’s, James Calado, who have finished every lap of every race this season.
“What a season it has been for me. We have improved every race and I can’t wait to get to Monza. I would have liked better results overall but I’m very pleased to have had the type of consistency that we have managed as a team in the first 14 races” said Daly. “I think I came to Europe at the right time, GP3 is one of the most difficult series to master and therefore it was the right place for me to learn”.
Daly has never raced at Monza before although he did attend the Italian Grand Prix last year to see the GP3 series in action.
