Interview: Jeff Segal Interview: Jeff Segal

How would you assess your 2018 Pirelli SprintX season? Did it exceed expectations?

“On the whole, I think we can look at 2018 and say that it was a very successful year.

“At the start of the year, we knew that we had a steep learning curve with the PWC SprintX format, and we tried very hard to manage expectations internally.

“I think everyone knew that we would have speed, but since we were two rookie drivers in this series, we understood that there would probably be some bumps along the way.

“TR3 Racing had a year of experience in PWC with the Ferrari, but with Wei and I both being new drivers to the team, we expected it might take some time to come together.

“Of course, starting the year with a race win at COTA in our very first weekend, this immediately made everyone hungry for more of the type of success.

“Ultimately, the fact that we ended the season with three race wins, many podiums, a lot of really strong race performances, and only narrowly missed the championship by a handful of points, we have to look at this as a very successful outcome.”
