GP2: Bird not going to moan about not making it into F1 yet
11 February, 2014
Highly rated Sam Bird, last year’s Mercedes F1 Reserve Driver and perennial GP2 front-runner is not going to moan about having not yet made it into Formula 1.
Speaking to Race Department, Bird said, “I’m not one to moan about it and cry out that ‘it’s not fair’. It is what it is. Work hard and have faith in yourself and in your future.”
“Of course I would still love my chance in F1. It’s where I have worked hard to be throughout my career and I know I am ready. But it’s no secret that I don’t meet the current ‘economic’ requirements,” quipped the 27 year old Briton.
In 2014 Bird has added United Sports Car Championship with Starworks to his agenda, having made his debut in the sportscar and GT based series at the recent Rolex 24 Hours of Daytona.
Bird explained, “I still believe that there are plenty of exciting racing Championships where a bit of talent and a lot of dedication and hard work are the currency required, so I’ll focus my efforts on those.”
“If the chance to race in F1 still comes my way, I will of course grab it and I will keep myself prepared for it,” he added. (GP247)
