Jamie Chadwick

 

British // 18 years old.

 

Favourite Circuit?

The Nordschleife

 

Are you excited to be a part of the Double R team?

 

Of course! There is a really great atmosphere and vibe within the whole team, so I am super excited to be working with everyone. Plus I don’t think you get barista coffee and Welsh cakes at any other team…

 

What are your personal/team ambitions for this season?

 

The key this year is to focus on my learning and development before getting too fixated on results. However, like any driver I want to be as competitive as possible and pushing at the sharp end. I know I have a Championship winning car beneath me so I definitely have no excuses!

 

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

Not really, mainly because I always forget them!! I do like to have a routine though. So, for example I always have the same breakfast of porridge made with half milk, half water, honey and a dash of cream - I’m honestly not picky!

Linus Lundqvist

 

Swedish // 17 years old.

 

Favourite Circuit?

 

Anderstorp, Sweden.

 

Favourite Driver?

 

Valentino Rossi (MotoGP) for his medial personality and supreme driving characteristics. Lewis Hamilton (F1) a driver who does the most remarkable things that no one thought he would do on the track.

 

What are your personal/team ambitions for this season?

 

My personal ambition for this season is to continue to develop my driving and my goal is to win the F4 British Championship. My ambition for the team is to build a good relationship so that we can achieve our goals together

 

What would you like the Double R followers to know about you?

 

I'm just an ordinary guy from Sweden who lives his dream at the moment. The running of cars has always been my greatest interest since I was a boy, whether it was a real car or a toy car. Otherwise when I´m not at the race track I like to be with my friends, listen to music and watch movies. My favourite artist: Barns Courtney and favourite movie: Intouchables.

Favourite Circuit?

 

Gold Coast 600 along with the atmosphere! However, I just tested recently at Spa and that was amazing!

 

Tell us a little about how you first got involved in driving?

 

I was out hire karting with dad and it kind of went from there. I had some savings from working as a soccer referee so we bought a kart and started doing laps. I began karting considerably late at the age of 14, before moving to single seaters at 16. It has been one amazing journey that's for sure!

 

 

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

 

To be honest, not really. But I can say if I'm not kicking a ball or doing some skipping to warm up I'll be listening to music and having some banter with the team! You could say I'm pretty relaxed at the race track!

 

 

Who has been your sporting inspiration?

 

It would definitely have to be the greatest of all time, Muhammad Ali. He is my ultimate role model not only in sport but in life.

Favourite Driver?

 

Alonso

 

Are you excited to be a part of the Double R team?

 

Yes, sure! As we all know, many F1 drivers have come from Double R Racing. I am honoured to be a member of the Double R team, aspiring to those who have gone before me.

 

 

Tell us a little about how you first got involved in driving?

 

When I was 6 years old, I liked a car named 'Tony Cart', so my father took me to a small circuit called Quyang circuit. I really liked it, and so my dream started here.

 

 

Anything else you’d like the Double R followers to know about you?

 

I’m a traditional Chinese boy in blood, but not in mind, for my experience of racing overseas so many years, so you can communicate with me about anything you want. In my leisure time, I like football and sailing, why not enjoy them together!
