Recently I got asked, 'If I had the chance to retrace my footsteps from karting to Formula 1, how would I do it today? What formulas would I aim for'?
For many young father-son partnerships this is the million-dollar question. In fact, I could see this particular individual waiting and hoping for me to deliver some magical advice, but in truth, I actually felt sorry for him and his son.
With the benefit of hindsight I am now very well informed, but surely there should be a structure in place today whereby the right advice is readily available to everyone, not just those with key contacts in the sport?
