Lawson Returns to Japan’s Premier Single-Seater Series
Red Bull junior driver, Liam Lawson, is set to resume his main commitments in Japan’s premier single-seater series after temporarily filling in for AlphaTauri’s Daniel Ricciardo in Formula 1. Since his last race in Super Formula at Motegi in August, Lawson made five grand prix appearances for AlphaTauri while Ricciardo was injured.
Valuable Experience in the F1 World
Tomo Koike, the overseer of Lawson’s side of the Team Mugen garage, believes that the young New Zealander’s time behind the wheel of an F1 car will be beneficial for his Super Formula career. Although Lawson did not score any points during his F1 outings, the experience gained will undoubtedly enhance his skills and broaden his horizons as he returns to his main racing commitments.
A Boost for Lawson’s Super Formula Title Hopes?
The question arises whether Lawson’s appearance in the Suzuka F1 outing could potentially boost his chances of clinching the Super Formula title. While it is uncertain how the F1 stint will directly impact his performance in the Japanese single-seater series, the exposure to a higher level of competition and technical expertise could provide him with newfound confidence and inspiration.
Back to the Grind in Super Formula
Now refocused on Super Formula, Lawson will resume his campaign in pursuit of the coveted championship crown. As one of Red Bull’s promising young talents, he aims to showcase his skills and talent in the highly competitive Japanese series, challenging seasoned veterans and striving for race victories.
As the season progresses, it will be intriguing to follow Lawson’s progress in Super Formula and see how his time in the F1 realm has influenced his performance on the track. With his return to Japan’s premier single-seater championship, Lawson will undoubtedly be hungrier than ever to make his mark and solidify his position as a rising star in the motorsport world.
