Jack Aitken’s fierce ambition makes Renault prodigy an F1 name to watch
The 22-year-old Londoner is Renault’s reserve driver for the 2018 F1 season but is waiting for his chance to seize a regular drive and confident he will get there
There is an easy-going charm and good humour to Jack Aitken. An articulate, witty manner that may be expected from a confident, privately educated young man but one that belies a fiercely determined streak when the visor comes down. Pleasing as it is to engage with a driver who has a personality, it is his will to win that will count as the 22-year-old attempts to make it to Formula One.
He admits this emphatic determination has led to his outlook being described as relentlessly pessimistic. It might be considered the mindset that has defined some of the great drivers, including Ayrton Senna and Michael Schumacher, and Aitken has the bold ambition to aim for the heights they achieved.
