The 15-year-old leads the MSA Formula Championship after some scintillating racing this season.

And as his attention turns to Imola with Mücke Motorsport, the racer is hoping for a positive outcome once again.

The ADD Motorsports-supported Somerset racer said: “It’s going to be a very hard weekend.

“All the drivers have already raced here earlier in the season, but I am going into it without that time. 

”It’s been a really great season so far, so hopefully I can keep my form up going into this weekend and come away with some points.”

After a good debut in Italian F4 earlier in the season, he found things tougher in July at Mugello – leaving without a podium place.

But as he gets ready to pit his wits against the other drivers once more, he is ready to step up a gear.

He added: “It’s great experience, but I’m not just here to get used to the track or the championship.

“I want to do well and think I have a good chance of coming away with something this weekend. We’ll see how things go.”
