"Mark helped me out when I was in a difficult situation at a key point in my career just after winning my first DTM title. I was young and had just secured one of the biggest titles in world motorsport and it was key to capitalise on the success and make the right decisions for my career. As a result of the guidance and support received from Mark and the team at MBP I raced for 12 more seasons in the DTM with Mercedes, securing my 2nd championship in 2018 and finishing in 2nd position on three other occasions. I also spent 8 years as a test and reserve driver for the McLaren Formula One team as well as working with Williams F1 for 2 seasons. I am now in a senior management position within the McLaren Electric Racing company which run the Formula E and Extreme E team for the brand.

I have no doubt that Mark and the team have been instrumental in me being able to sustain such a high level of performance for this long as well as developing the relationships needed to move on from racing into other roles within the sport.

It’s no surprise that I am really happy to be helping MBP give the same support and guidance to other drivers."
