Earlier this week, Formula Renault 3.5 driver Cameron Twynham contacted me regarding Sunday’s post about the new GP2 Series champion, Jolyon Palmer.

“[Jolyon Palmer] needs to get an opportunity [to drive in Formula One] in my opinion.
Junior championships including GP2 are for learning; some people learn fast, others take more time, but the end result is often better if you learn the correct way rather than accelerated or skipping steps.
His experience in GP2 is not just about winning, he has learnt how to qualify, how to race from the back, the middle and the front of a very aggressive grid and get to the end of the races with maximum points, not easy in GP2!
He has shown incredible pace this season plus amazing overtaking skills, and in a car as he says, is very similar to F1 speeds.
Not that F1 teams are listening to me but I really hope he gets there.”
My thanks to Cameron for submitting his thoughts.
